Combining a national research autopsy programme with computational approaches to study cancer evolution and metastasis: an interview with Mariam Jamal-Hanjani

Mariam Jamal-Hanjani is the Senior Clinical Lecturer & Group Leader for the Cancer Metastasis Lab at the UCL Cancer Institute and Honorary Consultant in Translational Lung Oncology at UCL Hospital. Mariam is the lead for their PEACE (Posthumous Evaluation of Advanced Cancer Environment) study, which involves people living with incurable cancer donating their bodies for research after they die, so that scientists can learn more about why cancer spreads and how advanced cancer kills.
