Professor Dame Jessica Corner: recovery update

July 23rd, 2020

We now have 44 buildings and research facilities open. The latest of these include University Park’s Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre and the GSK Carbon Neutral Laboratories for Sustainable Chemistry, Jubilee Campus.

Around 1,500 colleagues have meanwhile participated in virtual town halls for researchers and I am delighted that these online forums are proving a success.

Your insights into recovery and planning for the challenges ahead will inform a wider consultation beginning this autumn on how we should refresh and renew our current research strategy.

This is also an opportunity for the University to re-affirm world-class research as a priority, and we will listen to you as we look at how best to provide the time and support for the delivery of this goal alongside teaching and other commitments.
