Dr Neha Pathak, whose research focuses on women's health including screening and female cancers, was recently awarded the ‘Ultimate Game Changer’ prize at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women Awards

The award is in recognition of Dr Pathak’s research which discovered a simple urine human papillomavirus (HPV) test could offer women a more acceptable, non-invasive alternative to the smear test – the conventional test for cervical disease. Read the full story on the website of the Bristol Centre for Academic Primary Care (CAPC) where Neha is based.

Elizabeth Blackwell Institute is currently supporting one of Neha’s research projects through its Clinical Primer Scheme which is designed to give outstanding early career clinicians the chance to experience life in an academic research environment.

Professor Jeremy Tavaré, Director of the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute, said: “I have no doubt that Neha is on course to be one of our future most influential women in medicine and I will be following her career with great interest.”
