Huge congratulations to INFANT PhD student Caroline Joyce on receiving her Fellowship of the Royal College of Pathologists.

Caroline’s PhD work is on the identification of Biomarkers for the Diagnosis, Management and Follow-up of Women with Gestational Trophoblastic Disease. This project aims to identify more sensitive biomarkers for GTD to allow earlier detection of disease recurrence and progression to malignant disease.
