54 King Street, CB1 1LN Cambridge, Cambridgeshire
Discover how this ambitious global project aims to identify preventable causes of cancer by looking at the DNA ‘fingerprints’ of cancers caused by environmental and behavioural factors.

Dr Sarah Moody is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the Wellcome Sanger Institute. She studied for her PhD at the University of Cambridge identifying novel genetic features in lymphoma. She then moved to the Wellcome Sanger Institute to work with Professor Mike Stratton on the CRUK grand challenge, seeking to identify new preventable causes of cancer by investigating the mutation signatures or ‘fingerprints’ generated by environmental and behavior factors.
