Soft Tissue Sarcoma, Challenges of a rare disease.

Dr. Yolanda Augustin:
Dr. Augustin is a Malaysian oncologist with a special interest in sarcoma and global oncology. She did her undergraduate, medical, and palliative care training at Guy’s, King’s, and St Thomas School of Medicine before undertaking clinical oncology training at the Royal Marsden, London. Upon completion of her clinical oncology training, she undertook a research fellowship with the Royal Marsden Sarcoma Unit and obtained higher training in clinical trial design and delivery for novel systemic anticancer therapies and radiotherapy as part of an extensive clinical trial portfolio. She co-leads a global oncology programme at the St George’s University of London focused on developing affordable therapeutics and diagnostics for cancer and infectious disease in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs). This work brings together interdisciplinary experts from academia, global health, and industry, with research collaborations in Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, India, and Senegal. Workstreams within the programme include artemisinin drug repurposing for cancer, affordable point-of-care diagnostics for HPV DNA screening for cervical cancer, and advocacy work with community healthcare champions and local stakeholders in rural communities on removing barriers to equitable healthcare access and delivery. She also works with oncology colleagues in Malaysia on sarcoma service development and clinical oncology training.
