Pathology Grand Rounds November 2021- Sponsored by PathSoc & The Jean Shanks Foundation
Title: 'Applying single-cell technologies in nephropathology'

Prof Menna Clatworthy, University of Cambridge

Menna Clatworthy read Medicine at Cardiff, completed her professional training in nephrology at Cambridge, and undertook a PhD at the University of Cambridge investigating IgG effector function in autoimmunity and infection. She was awarded the British Renal Association Raine Award and the Academy of Medical Sciences/Medical Research Society Young Investigator Award for this work. She subsequently completed a Wellcome Trust Intermediate Fellowship at Cambridge and the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, USA.
She is currently the Professor of Translational Immunology at the University of Cambridge Department of Medicine. She also works clinically as an Honorary Consultant Nephrologist and holds an Associate Faculty position in Cellular Genetics at the Wellcome Sanger Institute. Her research is focused on understanding the regulation of antibody generation and effector function, novel methods of targeting humoral immunity in transplantation and autoimmunity and the role of tissue-environment in shaping resident immune cell activation and function, particularly in the kidney. She also an active participant in the Human Cell Atlas Project (https://www.humancellatlas.org), utilizing single cell technologies to better understand the cellular landscape of the human kidney.

Professor Adrienne Flanagn
@University College of London
The session will be chaired by Professor Adrienne Flanagan.
Dr Lucy Yates
Clinical Career Development Fellow at the Wellcome Sanger Institute @Wellcome Sanger Institute, Cambridge
Lucy Yates is a Clinical Career Development Fellow at the Wellcome Sanger Institute. Lucy trained as a clinical oncologist in London, UK and attained a PhD in cancer genomics and evolution from the Wellcome Sanger Institute and the University of Cambridge. Her research program is focused on understanding the evolutionary mechanisms underlying cancer onset, growth and progression. This is achieved by employing a range of genomic and spatial profiling techniques and developing computational approaches that facilitate the integration and modelling of multi-layered datasets.
