Ian Frazer: The man who saved a million lives

Author: Madonna King



The major Australian biography of 2013
 
When Professor Ian Frazer was awarded the patent for the vaccine to cervical cancer, he knew it could help to save the lives of 275,000 women around the world each year.
 
Respected across the globe, few people know the real story of the Scottish-born Australian of the Year who is behind one of the great medical discoveries of the century. Given exclusive access to Ian Frazer, biographer and award-winning journalist Madonna King peels back the many layers of his extraordinary life. She tells of the ongoing struggle for funding cancer research, the herculean international legal battle waged to win the patent, the devastating loss of his friend and co researcher, Dr Jian Zhou, and Ian Frazer’s ongoing commitment to have the vaccine made available in the developing world.
 
Ian Frazer: The man who saved a million lives is an unforgettable story of perseverance and aspiration. And he isn’t finished yet, with research underway for another historic medical breakthrough.
