A message from Bill Spence, Vice-Principal (Research)

We are very pleased to let you know that we have appointed a new Dean for Life Sciences, who will play a key role in the next stage of the development of this major initiative. This is Panos Deloukas, Professor of Cardiovascular Genomics at the William Harvey Research Institute (WHRI).

Panos joined QMUL from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in Cambridge in 2013, where he led a large research group and ran a high throughput genotyping facility. He has been listed in the top one per cent most cited scientists world-wide for Molecular Biology and Genetics every year since 2002. He has helped shape, and played a lead role in major international and national projects such as the Human Genome Project, the Haplotype Map Project, and the Wellcome Trust Case-Control Consortium, as well as leading efforts in many international consortia and leading the £6.3m inherited cardiovascular disorders theme in the recently awarded NIHR Barts Biomedical Research Centre. In education he has set up a new MSc course in Genomic Medicine, sponsored by Health Education England, and lectures in joint teaching programmes with the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences.

Panos will remain a member of the WHRI, with an allocation of 0.5FTE of time to the Dean position, starting from Tuesday 3 October.
