Welcome Cynthia Buness!
Cynthia Buness has joined the Physical Sciences and Oncology Center as our new advocate, a role in which she will work with the local community to increase public awareness of our cancer research progress.
Buness, a science and law graduate of ASU, is well known in the Phoenix business and law communities. As an attorney for Motorola, she investigated claims that toxic chemicals were released by the company which polluted the Phoenix residential water supply. Buness worked with researchers worldwide to successfully defend the company from suits filed by different plaintiffs.
Buness also served on the Board of Directors for the Phoenix Zoo and founded the Conservation Fund Committee which raises money for projects to protect endangered species.
Buness has strong links to the ASU alumni community and is extremely excited to be working with the Physical Sciences and Oncology team.
“For me, it is very empowering to create public awareness of ongoing cancer research” Buness said.
“The Center has an amazing ability to bring leading scientists to the Valley and it is enriching to help and get involved.”
Buness is passionate about science and is glad to be on board. The PSOC is delighted to welcome her.
