This webinar is with Dr Sam Behjati, a Group Leader and Wellcome Trust Intermediate Clinical Fellow who works across cellular genetics and cancer. The origins of childhood cancer lie in aberrant development. Here, I will present studies of reconstructing the embryology of childhood cancers from somatic mutations. These investigations have yielded remarkable insights into the precise origin of some tumour types, whilst raising a fundamental questions about the relationship of the cancer genome and tissue transformation Sam will also provide some background on his career path and will be happy to take questions about this in the discussion. Sam is the Pezcoller Foundation-EACR Rising Star Award winner for 2021.
