Suzy Lishman

The Power List 2015

Suzy Lishman

Suzy is a histopathologist and president of the UK’s Royal College of Pathologists. In Peterborough, she leads the cellular pathology department and has a particular interest in colorectal pathology and cancer screening. As president of the College, she provides leadership for pathologists and scientists internationally. She passionately represents the views of members, working closely with other specialist societies, and forging links with parliamentarians and other policy makers to ensure that pathology is considered in health-related discussions. She can still be found performing virtual autopsies and talking to school groups in between presidential duties. Her public engagement work has led to some amusing situations, including “being filmed for television demonstrating the effect of wearing a tight corset on a male model at Griff Rhys Jones’ London home, performing a virtual brain autopsy at Latitude Festival (complete with blancmange brain), and being interviewed by actor Larry Lamb about the pathology faced by soldiers in WWI trenches.”
