The Royal College of Pathologists (RCPath) has presented Professor Sarah Coupland with an award in recognition of her significant contribution to ocular pathology and oncology.
The RCPath Excellence Awards celebrate excellence in pathology practice and promote high standards in pathology education, training and research to deliver the best patient care. The winners have been awarded for their contribution to education, patient safety, innovation in pathology practice and contribution to specialty.
Professor Coupland is an outstanding pre-eminent ocular pathologist in the UK and is internationally acclaimed for her work in ocular oncology. She has been instrumental to the care delivered to the world-recognised ocular oncology service in Liverpool through her pathology work, development of molecular and tumour signatures of ocular tumours, providing the evidence that informs treatments, prognosis and optimal patient care.
The Liverpool Ocular Oncology Centre provides a multidisciplinary care and treatment for adult patients with tumours of the eye.
The Royal College of Pathologists is a charity with over 11,000 members worldwide. The majority of members are doctors and scientists working in hospitals and universities in the UK. The College oversees the training of pathologists and scientists working in 17 different specialties, which include cellular pathology, haematology, clinical biochemistry and medical microbiology.
Announcing the winners, Professor Jo Martin, President of The Royal College of Pathologists, said: “The winners of the RCPath Excellence Awards for 2019 exemplify the best of pathology practice.
“It’s wonderful to celebrate the amazing contribution pathologists and colleagues make to patient care. The winners combine dedication and commitment, going beyond the day-to-day to improve the working lives of their colleagues and the health and care of patients.”
Of the award Professor Coupland, said: “This is a great honour for me, but I would not have received this had it not been for the constant dedication and support of the Ocular Pathology team based at RLBUHT and the University.”
The awards were presented during a special ceremony at the Royal College of Pathology’s new building in London on June 12th, 2019.
