In 2016, Sarah returned to WEHI to work with A/Prof Sutherland on KEAP1 biology in lung cancer.

In 2018, Sarah won the Griffith University Discovery Award (Research Australia) for her work on KEAP1-mutant lung adenocarcinoma and she has been supported by the Victorian Cancer Agency Early Career Seed Grant and an NHMRC New Investigator Project Grant. Her interest lies in the genetics of solid tumours, with a focus on the design of personalised therapeutics for patients.
