Sarah Bohndiek completed her PhD in Radiation Physics at University College London in 2008 and then worked in both the UK (at Cambridge) and the USA (at Stanford) as a postdoctoral fellow in molecular imaging. Sarah joined the University of Cambridge in 2013, where she is jointly appointed as a Professor of Biomedical Physics in the Department of Physics and at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute. The broad mission of Sarah’s interdisciplinary team, the VISIONLab, is to advance our understanding of tumour evolution using next-generation imaging sciences, and translate their findings into first-in-human clinical trials. Sarah was awarded the CRUK Future Leaders in Cancer Research Prize and SPIE Early Career Achievement Award in recognition of her interdisciplinary research innovation.
Sarah also takes an active role in teaching and mentoring the next generation of scientists, acting as an ambassador for public engagement and interdisciplinary research training throughout her career. Sarah regularly delivers talks on career development at both national and international workshops, and was awarded the MSCA Award for Nurturing Research Talent. In addition to leading the VISIONLab, Sarah is currently a Programme Director at the UK’s recently founded Advanced Research and Innovation Agency (ARIA).
