The Department's buildings are currently open for wet laboratory work only. We have carried out a comprehensive COVID-19 risk assessment process and have introduced a number of new measures to ensure the safety of our staff, including reduced building occupancy, strict social distancing, 'family'-based working, and increased cleaning and hygiene regimes. All staff who can work remotely will do so for the foreseeable future. Please continue to contact us by email until further notice.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, this year's Part II examinations were conducted online, with the papers changed to a 24 hour, open-book format. We want to thank all our Part II class for working with us through these challenging circumstances and doing so well. The class results were a colossal achievement both collectively and individually; hopefully this is reflected in all the smiling faces on our Zoom class photograph!

To all members of the Part II class moving on to pastures new, we wish you the very best for the future, please stay in touch with us and let us now how you are doing. To the many of you who are staying to join us for Part III, we are looking forward to seeing you all again in October.
