Grace Uruski

Hi, my name is Grace Uruski. I have recently been appointed by Wales Cancer Bank as a Research Nurse.

Following my training as a Registered General Nurse in Co. Galway Ireland I moved to Cardiff and worked in medicine and surgery at UHW. For the last 25 years I have worked as a Specialist Nurse in Cardiff and Vale Breast Centre. I have gained a wealth of knowledge and expertise in oncology, screening and surgical management for breast patients. I have been fortunate to work at Breast Test Wales and Velindre Cancer Centre which has enriched my experience in the management of breast disease and knowledge of ongoing research available to patients. 

I have seen many changes in treatments over this time which would not have been possible without research.

I am excited now to be involved with the vital role Wales Cancer Bank has and is continuing to provide towards the advancement of research and more personalised treatments for patients.
