The Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics was delighted to welcome Hildegarde Mahoney and her son Bob Merrill to the Department on Friday 29th June 2018.
The new Centre for Integrative Neuroscience was in part supported by a gift from Hillie, in honour of her husband David Mahoney, a champion of neuroscience.
Hillie was given a tour of the Department by Head of Department Professor David Paterson, before unveiling a plaque in the presence of the Department's neuroscience community, outside the Sherrington Lecture Theatre. The plaque is to thank Hillie for her generosity and support of the Department.
The event was marked by a drinks reception in the Sherrington Building foyer.
The Department is also grateful to Emeritus Professor Sir Colin Blakemore, the connection between Hillie and the Department, as an old friend of hers.
