Dr Caroline Young


I undertook an Academic Clinical Fellowship in Leeds as a histopathology registrar, before being awarded a Wellcome Trust Research Training Fellowship to investigate translational aspects of colorectal cancer microbiome research. This is being supervised by Professor Philip Quirke, Professor Eva Morris and Dr Henry Wood.

Research interests

I am interested in the pathology of colorectal cancer, specifically its association with the microbiome and the translational potential of this emerging field of research.
