Research interests

Bridget is a pathology champion for biobanking in research. She was instrumental in setting up an Experimental Cancer Medicine Centre (ECMC) networking group of pathologists, to increase the recognition and maximise the scope of pathology contributions to ECMC programmes of translational research. From that, working within the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI), Bridget established ‘CM-Path’, an ongoing NCRI-funded initiative to reinvigorate academic endeavour within cellular and molecular pathology. She continues to represent CM-Path within the Royal College of Pathologists as a co-opted member of the latter’s research committee.

Bridget has ongoing direct participation in research into the pathology of myeloproliferative neoplasms, contributing to studies arising from the PT-1 and MAJIC studies in collaboration with professor Claire Harrison in haematology at Guy's and St Thomas', professor Tony Green in Cambridge and professor Adam Mead in Oxford.
