Biosketch of Sarah Bohndiek
Sarah trained in Experimental and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge, and then did a PhD in Radiation Physics at UCL. She then joined the lab of Kevin Brindle in the Dept of Biochemistry at Cambridge, where she worked on developing imaging methods for the molecular diagnosis of cancer. After a Post Doc position at Stanford in Sam Gambhir’s lab, Sarah returned to Cambridge in 2013 to take up a Lectureship in the Dept of Physics. She is now a Reader in Biomedical Physics, a Fellow of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, and a Junior Group Leader in the CRUK Cambridge Institute. Her group combines physicists, engineers, chemists, and molecular biologists who work at the clinical interface. Their imaging innovations arise primarily from low cost optics and photonics technologies, applied both in cancer models and in patients. They are particularly interested in developing methods to interrogate cancer metabolism and the tumour microenvironment.
