Department of Biochemistry


Biochemistry Alumni Day 2023

It's time to save the date!

Plan your trip to Cambridge on Saturday, 1 July 2023, and join us for the first Biochemistry Alumni Day.


This day will include short talks from current staff members about the latest research and laboratory tours. There will also be time to catch up and reminisce with your peers, our Faculty members, and students. You will have the chance to see how the Department has changed since you were students and hear our HoD's view for the future. A buffet lunch will be served in the Sanger common room and garden.

It promises to be a great day—so mark your calendars and stay tuned for more details!


We hope that you will be able to join us. Bookings can be made online here. Please get in touch if you cannot book online.

The deadline for booking is Sunday 18 June 2023 at the latest.

Partners are welcome to join the day. Free tickets for under 12-year-olds are also available.
