I will be ensuring our staff and students are supported and feel valued at the Botnar, whilst they carry out the amazing work they do. I particularly want to expand the excellent research and teaching programmes established by my predecessor, by fostering stronger collaborations across the Medical Sciences Division and around the world.”
