Junior Attending Physician
Dr. William Mifsud is a Junior Attending Physician in Anatomical Pathology at Sidra Medicine, where he is part of the team delivering paediatric and perinatal pathology services. Prior to joining Sidra Medicine, he worked as a paediatric pathologist at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, after training in paediatric and perinatal pathology at Great Ormond Street Hospital and University College Hospital, London, and general histopathology at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge. At Great Ormond Street, he held a UK National Institute of Health Research Academic Clinical Lectureship, which allowed him to pursue research in paediatric tumour genomics at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and the UCL Institute of Child Health. Before training in pathology, Dr. Mifsud qualified in medicine and surgery from his native country of Malta and then did his PhD in Developmental Biology at the University of Cambridge.
Dr. Mifsud’s clinical work spans the entire range of diagnostic paediatric and perinatal pathology, with special interest in the diagnosis of medical renal biopsies and paediatric renal tumours. His main research interests are in paediatric tumour evolution and its impact on clinical outcome, and more recently in the emerging area of digital pathology and specifically its impact on paediatric tissue diagnosis.
