If you say you’re a pathologist, people think your job is just all about dealing with dead bodies and autopsies. It isn’t, we help save lives and cure cancer too. In this talk Peter Hunt will explain about his work as a consultant histopathologist in a large NHS path lab, where his team diagnoses over 1000 new breast cancers a year. You will find out that breast cancer has many forms and what his team’s role is in its diagnosis. Peter will explain how the information provided helps determine and drive personalised treatment for everyone (both women and men) with breast cancer and how it has helped the survival rate double over the last 40 years.
Talk by Professor Roger, Consultant Histopathologist, University Hospital of South Manchester
