Verrill Pathology Group
We aim to embed the role of pathology across all research for the benefit of patients and to bring about improvements in the quality of research. Our team have interests in a wide range of projects including in digital pathology and image analysis, and multimodal and molecular pathology.

Oxford is contributing cases to the central PathLAKE across multiple tissue types. The cellular pathology NHS lab at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is undergoing a transformation to digital reporting. The aim is fully digital reporting by 2021. We anticipate efficiency gains and patient benefits from transition to this technology such as quicker results and networked working across the region with better access to second opinions.
