Maud Slye (1879-1954), US pathologist and cancer researcher. Slye studied at the University of Chicago, and then graduated from Brown University in 1899. She later carried out graduate work at the University of Chicago, where she would work and study until her retirement in 1944. Her main advance (from 1926) was research that supported the proposal that cancer could be hereditary. Her honours include the gold medal of the American Medical Association (1914), the Ricketts Prize (1915), and the gold medal of the American Radiological Society (1922). She was also a prolific poet, publishing her work in two large volumes in the 1930s.
