Professor Sarah Coupland elected PathSoc President

Professor Sarah Coupland has been elected President of the Pathological Society of Great Britain and Ireland (PathSoc) following the Society's recent Annual General Meeting in Sheffield.

Professor Coupland is the current ‘George Holt Chair of Pathology’ at the University of Liverpool, and leads the world-renowned Liverpool Ocular Oncology Research Group, comprising 30 clinicians, scientists and students. LOORG’s research focuses on ocular melanomas, lymphomas and other eye cancers, and employs high-resolution techniques to better understand the development/progression of these tumours, to improve patient outcome.

A senior Consultant Histopathologist at the Liverpool University Foundation Hospital Trusts with expertise in Ophthalmic Pathology, Haematopathology, Molecular Pathology, and Biobanking, Professor Coupland also leads one of the four superregional NHSE eye pathology services, receiving ophthalmic samples from a broad geographical area, and enabling trainees from the UK and overseas to experience ocular and molecular pathology.

Professor Coupland said: “It is a great honour and privilege for me to take on this role. PathSoc is the oldest organisation promoting academic pathology – it was established in 1906 and has been instrumental in maintaining advances in medicine and pathological sciences over the last 118 years. Its journals, which include The Journal of Pathology and The Journal of Pathology: Clinical Research are high impact and full of cutting-edge research.”

“I hope to continue the dedicated work of the PathSoc Committee in nurturing academic pathology at all levels of training, from undergraduates through to trainees and consultants, utilising the advanced technologies that are coming through.”
