The Department's Annual Report for the academic year 2019-2020 has been released. The brochure showcases a selection of the year's highlights; from a cross-section of our cutting-edge research, to notable events hosting distinguished international scholars, to our response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

The Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics has faced both a challenging and successful year. In March, we recaptured our world number one ranking for Anatomy and Physiology; both academic and professional services staff are to be congratulated. We soon came to understand that our world leading position came with a responsibility to rise to the challenge of COVID-19, which has redefined the year and shaped our future. In response, we donated equipment for testing, seconded personnel to the clinical frontline and investigated repurposed and existing drugs to treat the virus [...] I conclude by thanking all our staff for their commitment to the Department and unfailing hard work over the past year as we all adapt to the new normal and a world of Zoom and Teams. Although we are physically distancing, we are still socially and academically connected.
- Head of Department Professor David Paterson
