More than 120 colleagues in GEE and its admin-support groups in Estates & Facilities, Finance, Staffing & HR and Teaching, gathered in the North Cloisters, Wilkins Building, UCL, on Tuesday 22 June, to mark the end of Professor Steve Jones's tenure as Head of Department, GEE.  Professor Andrew Pomiankowski, Professor of Genetics and Director of CoMPLEX for the last five years, has agreed to take on the role of Head of Department.

Steve Jones joined UCL as a Lecturer in Genetics in 1978, and was Head of the Department of Genetics from 1995-9 and again from 2008. Steve will continue his highly popular 'Introduction to Human Genetics' course and a variety of single lectures in other courses, as well as giving a large number of lectures and presentations to schools and other external organisations, combining this with his press, radio and television work, speaking about genetics, evolution and related issues to the general public.

On behalf of everyone, Associate Dean, Prof John Carroll, thanked Steve Jones for the energy and enthusiasm he has brought to this important post.

As a token of warmest thanks from all his colleagues in the department, Steve Jones was presented with an original artwork in acrylic on canvas: a most-suitable abstract image by Bavarian artist Thomas Suske entitled 'Nautilus'.
