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.

We would be very pleased to receive any comments that you think would be of interest to us, based on your experience of supervising MIMS or BMB. Your feedback (positive as well as negative!) will be most valuable and will be passed on as appropriate. Please send your comments to the assistant director of teaching, either e-mail ( or paper, as you prefer.

We also run supervisor discussion sessions to which you will be invited if you are on our email list.
