A word about Mme le Dr. Nuovo-Soldati (1925 - 2009)

Doctor Violette NUOVO-SOLDATI was largely responsible for the development of cytological diagnosis of malignancies in Paris during the 1960s.

She came to Paris having studied with Professor Papanicolaou in New York and subsequently developed her expertise in tumour diagnosis especially in the field of urological and genital cancers. Her enthusiasm, her rigour, her dedication and her enormous experience made Dr Nuovo-Soldati one of the pioneers in her field.

After her retirement, Mme le Dr Nuovo-Soldati has continued to support Cancer research. Each year the foundation that bears her name, and is funded by her generosity, provides the opportunity for several young doctors to undertake a high level research project that aims to improve the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
