PathSoc Sir Nicholas Wright Lecture
This prestigious named lecture was given by an up and coming pathology researcher Dr Sarah Aitken from Cambridge describing her exciting work on ‘Experimental models of liver cancer genome evolution’.

Dr Sarah Aitken is currently an NIHR Clinical Lecturer in Histopathology at the University of Cambridge, and she will join the MRC Toxicology Unit (University of Cambridge) as a Group Leader in autumn 2021 to start her independent research group. Her current work focusses on the genetic and epigenetic basis of hepatocarcinogenesis, mechanisms of mutagenesis, and the consequences of genetic diversity on cancer evolution.
