    Dr Serena Nik-ZainalOn 30 September 2020, we were delighted to elect Dr Serena Nik-Zainal as an Honorary Fellow of Murray Edwards College. We look forward to hosting a small ceremony (when possible) to mark her admission to the College.

    Serena is an alumna of the College (NH, 1995) and is a CRUK Advanced Clinician Scientist and an Honorary Consultant in Clinical Genetics. In 2019, she was awarded the Dr Josef Steiner Cancer Research Prize, originally also known as the “Nobel Prize for Cancer Research”. Thanks to her research, mutations in cancer tumours can be analysed using new bioinformatic methods, which enables new approaches to targeted therapies.
