Head of School nominated for book award

Congratulations to our Head of School, Professor Anne Kerr, whose book has been shortlisted for the Foundation for the Sociology of Health and Illness Book Prize (FSHI). 

'Personalised cancer medicine: Future crafting in the genomic era', written by Anne with colleagues Choon Key Chekar, Emily Ross, Julia Swallow and Sarah Cunningham-Burley, draws on studies with cancer patients, carers and practitioners in the UK, and traces their efforts to access and interpret novel genomic tests, information and treatments as they craft personal and collective futures. 

The FSHI prize is awarded annually each September to the author(s) or editor(s) of the book making the most significant contribution to medical sociology/sociology of health and illness and having been published over the three years preceding 1 January of the year in which the award is made.

Anne's book is one of four nominations.
