The Department's Annual Report for the academic year 2021-22 has been released. The brochure showcases a selection of the year's highlights, including another top world ranking for Anatomy and Physiology and a strong contribution to the University of Oxford's success to Unit of Assessment 5 in the National Research Excellence framework (2021).

 

The Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics has emerged triumphantly from the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. [...] I conclude by thanking all our staff for their continued commitment to the Department. Many of them have now moved into the new Institute of Developmental and Regenerative Medicine where they are poised to make ground-breaking discoveries to help treat birth defects and acquired disease. Despite our increased distance, we remain unified by our common goal to empower discovery in the physiological sciences, and I could not be more proud of everyone for their unfailing hard work to achieve this. - Head of Department Professor David Paterson
