A former technician from the Laboratory of Physiology, which now forms part of our current Department, has been welcomed as Oxford's new Lord Mayor.
We are all very proud that a former member of the Department has taken up such a honourable and privileged position
- Professor David Paterson, Head of Department
Colin Cook, who currently works as Chief Technician in the Medical Sciences Teaching Centre (MSTC), was officially sworn in at the traditional mayor-making ceremony in the Oxford Town Hall last month.
Colin is not the first Lord Mayor to come from our Department; Tommy Meadows, who was also a technician in Physiology many years ago, was Oxford's Lord Mayor in 1971.
