"I am currently working on a research project to identify a recently described sub-type of acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, using FISH and PCR instead of the more expensive techniques (gene expression profiling and RNA sequencing) initially used to describe this subtype.   I foresee that in the next ten years, along with CT scans, PET scans and biopsies, we will also have routine genomic sequencing of the diseased and normal cells for patients with cancer.   This will lead to more individualised treatment, and hopefully better outcomes for patients.”
