Meet Sarah, Clinical Scientist at Sheffield Children’s!

As a Clinical Scientist, Sarah uses genomics to help diagnose people with cancer and match them to the treatment most likely to work for them (known as personalised medicine).

Whilst studying for her Master’s in Human and Molecular Genetics at The University of Sheffield, Sarah carried out her work experience at the Julia Garnham Centre (a university partnership with the Sheffield Children’s) which cemented her love for genomics in healthcare. She then went on to secure a role at Sheffield Children’s on the Scientist Training Programme in Cancer Genomics. Sarah really enjoyed working here so she opted to stay in the same laboratory after qualifying as a Clinical Scientist.

Sarah said: “I always knew that I needed a job with purpose. Working in cancer genomics touches diagnosis, prognosis (likely outcomes) and treatment to enable the best outcomes for patients. Every day is different – there’s always something new to learn, and challenges to overcome, in this continually evolving field. The Sheffield laboratory is a great team environment, where we strive to do what’s best for our patients.”
