Dr Rasha Abu Eid presented a poster at the Joint meeting of the Pathological Society of Great Britain and Ireland and the Royal Society of Medicine which was held in London between the 31st of January and the 2nd of February 2023.
Dr Abu Eid’s poster was entitled “Quantification of PD-L1 in normal, potentially malignant and malignant oropharyngeal tissues using image analysis” and is part of a project that was funded by Friends of Anchor. The specific work presented was carried out by a summer student from the School of Medicine, Medical Sciences and Nutrition (SMMSN), Jerjena Koren, who received a bursary from the Pathological Society to participate in this research project under Dr Abu Eid’s supervision during the summer of 2021.
Jerneja was keen to develop her skills further and Dr Abu Eid secured further funding for another summer project in 2022 from Friends of Anchor. Results from the second project will be presented at future meetings.
Jernjeja is currently on a research placement in Switzerland, and therefore, Dr Abu Eid presented the work which was well received at the meeting.
