Gynaecological cancer pathology, particularly ovarian cancer

Research Interests

I am part of the Nicola Murray Centre for Ovarian Cancer Research, with current projects including the molecular investigation of high-grade serous carcinoma of the ovary and the characterization of endometrioid and clear cell ovarian carcinomas. I am Editor in Chief of The Journal of Pathology and The Journal of Pathology: Clinical Research. I also have a long-standing interest in optical imaging, which focuses on technology that can discriminate between normal and neoplastic cells and tissues. I have an active collaboration with the School of Physics and Astronomy in St Andrews and am part of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and MRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Optical Imaging (OPTIMA), through which I have a collaboration with Strathclyde University. These collaborations all aim to develop novel optical approaches to cancer diagnosis. My research interests align with my clinical practice, as a consultant gynaecological pathologist with NHS Lothian. ORCID ID
