Biography
Dr Larissa Mendes is a doctor from Brazil with training in Anatomic Pathology. She is a Clinical Research Associate/ PhD student in the Treatment Resistance team (UCL Cancer Institute) working with the Stratosphere Consortium a pan-UK organisation aiming to accelerate the introduction of rational, biomarker treatment pairings for precision treatment of men with advanced prostate cancer initiating androgen-deprivation therapy. The diagnosis of neoplastic diseases has been a major part of her routine as a Pathologist. There isn't, in her opinion, a more important and consequential aspect of a pathologist's job than to provide the best and most thorough diagnosis to effectively guide patient care. 
In this new millennium, the diagnostic task will most certainly include data beyond traditional histological features and compromised surgical margins. Physicians, and an increasingly well-informed patient population, will want to know how the molecular underpinnings of tumours can impact choice of and responses to treatments. To her, joining this team is a unique opportunity to be at the forefront of this paradigm shift and to help advance precision medicine in the field of prostate cancer.
