Richard Colling


Clinical Lecturer in Histopathology

  • Honorary Registrar in Histopathology
  • Retained Lecturer in Medicine (Pathology)

I am a Clinical Lecturer in Histopathology in NDCLS and my time is split between research and clinical activities at the John Radcliffe Hospital. My interests are in urological pathology, digital pathology and evidence-based diagnostics. I also teach undergraduate Medicine (Pathology) at Pembroke College.


My research is currently focused on investigating the use of digital pathology, machine learning and image analysis (VIS, ImageJ, python) in the histopathological assessment of cancer. I collaborate locally with the Oxford Digital Pathology Working Group (CRUK Oxford Centre).


I was awarded my medical degree in 2009 following an intercalated BSc. I began an ACF in Histopathology in Oxford in 2013 and completed an MSc in Evidence-Based Healthcare alongside my clinical work. In 2015 I was appointed as a Molecular Diagnostics and Digital Pathology Fellow in the Department of Oncology and completed an MD by research. I started my current Clinical Lecturer post in 2017 and I obtained Fellowship of the Royal College of Pathologists (FRCPath) in 2018.
