“Alice manages to juggle clinical commitments, research, chairing the Trainees Advisory Committee, and undertaking public engagement work, including organizing a careers weekend for junior doctors considering a career in pathology,” says one nominator, praising her ability to represent and advocate for her chosen profession.

Although she loves her research, she says her career highlight to date has been chairing the Trainees’ Advisory Committee at RCPath. In the future, she’s excited about the opportunities and challenges ahead for the profession – in molecular pathology, personalized medicine, point-of-care testing, and the mitigation of antibiotic resistance.
