Sanjana Patel, a Y12 student at Bolton School Girls’ Division, has won first prize in a ‘Beat the Pathologist’ competition organised by the University of Warwick. In the competition, students had to identify and annotate different types of tumours to give a diagnosis. Whilst the competition aimed to demonstrate what pathologists do, it also showcased the significant advances being made in the area as pathology becomes more and more digitally based. Significant projects worldwide are developing algorithms and artificial intelligence applications to help pathologists diagnose more accurately and faster, for the benefit of the patient.

Sixth Former Sanjana won a £50 Amazon voucher.
