Overview

I thrive on the complexity and high degree of difficulty required to successfully treat patients with head and neck cancer.

Special clinical interests in head and neck cancers and complex skin cancers.

June initially trained as a Medical Oncologist and then furthered her studies to include Radiation Oncology, specialising in head and neck cancers. She joined GenesisCare in July 2016, after 22 years at Peter Mac, the last 15 years as Chair of that Head and Neck Service.

June is a founding member and past president of the ANZ H&NC and IAOO societies, previous executive member of the TROG Cancer Research Group, previous Chair of the TROG ANROTAT NPC committee and the Department of Health’s Optimal Care Pathways for H&N cancer patients, previous Chair HNC group in WCMICS, and current member of the UICC TNM H&N committee. She is on the editorial boards of JCO, IJROBP, Head and Neck and Oral Oncology journals. She has been Editor of the H&N section of the IJROBP.

June has a strong commitment to clinical research with 130 publications and 7 book chapters.

Research interests

Clinical research is the way we improve future outcomes for patients – from better treatments to better patient support during and after cancer treatment.
