Prof. Suzanne Turner
Suzanne obtained her PhD from the world-renowned Paterson Institute for Cancer Research. Following this training period Suzanne moved to a research post at the Babraham Institute in Cambridge where she began to investigate mechanisms of lymphomagenesis, a subject that she has pursued to become a world-expert in paediatric lymphomas. For the past 17 years Suzanne has been leading an academic research group at the University of Cambridge within the Department of Pathology. It is here that Suzanne conducts research and also teaches and examines aspects of the medical, veterinary and natural science tripos.
In 2007, Suzanne was awarded the prestigious Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research (LLR) Bennett Fellowship and in 2012 a further 5-year LLR senior lectureship award. Suzanne is currently non-clinical chair of the European Inter-Group for Collaboration into Childhood Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (EICNHL), co-chair of the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Centre Paediatric Programme and biological lead for the National Cancer Research Institute paediatric lymphoma Clinical Study Group.
She is also a member of the scientific committee of the European arm of the International Society for paediatric Oncology (SIOP). Suzanne collaborates with a wide array of scientists and clinicians around the world, most notably the Uganda Cancer Institute in Kampala with whom she is working towards finding better therapies for children with cancer.
