Professor Joanne Martin, BioMoti co-founder and Director, has been elected by Fellows of The Royal College of Pathology to be their next president. Professor Martin was appointed President-Elect at the College’s Annual General Meeting.

Professor Martin said: “I am very honoured that College Fellows have given me the opportunity to serve my College. I will build on the work of my predecessors in raising the profile of the College and of pathology in government, industry and healthcare. The College is in a unique position to offer help and advice and to champion research, innovation and the great advances that pathology can make to health and patient care. Where there are challenges I also want to make sure that the voice of the profession is heard. I will work with the College to encourage and support the next generation of medical students and trainees to choose and flourish in a career in pathology.”

Professor Martin will take up the role of President from November 2017 when the College’s current President, Dr Suzy Lishman, demits office.
