The Department's Annual Report for the academic year 2020-2021 has been released. The brochure showcases a selection of the year's highlights, celebrating our significant advances in both research and equality, diversity and inclusion in what has been another challenging year in the grip of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite the ongoing challenges presented to us by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics has enjoyed an enormously successful year. [...] I conclude by thanking all of our staff for their continued commitment to the Department, and in particular, the excellent work of the professional services staff, such as the Facilities team, who have been coming in every day to keep us going throughout the pandemic. - Head of Department Professor David Paterson
