We are greatly saddened to announce the death of Prof Andrew Burroughs, who passed away on Saturday 15th March, at the age of 60. Prof Burroughs was an eminent and world renowned Professor of Hepatology and Consultant Physician/Hepatologist. He joined the UCL Institute of Liver and Digestive Health last year, having previously worked in the Sheila Sherlock Liver Centre at the Royal Free Hospital for the majority of his career.
Professor Massimo Pinzani, Sheila Sherlock Chair of Hepatology and Director of the UCL Institute for Liver and Digestive Health, commented:
"Andy was one of the greatest hepatologists in history and the true representative of Dame Sheila Sherlock's legacy. For more than thirty years, Andy led world class clinical research at the Royal Free providing major advances in clinical practice. He was a world leader and an amazing mentor for generations of hepatologists trained at the Royal Free. Our thoughts go to his family and to the memories of him working with us."

Rebecca McKelvey (Neuroscience) and Adam Giangreco (Medicine) have secured funding from Development and Alumni Relations and UCL Outreach to support the UCL-led In2ScienceUK laboratory placement scheme. The aim of this scheme is to inspire and motivate AS level science students from low income backgrounds and support them in their application to competitive research universities.
Now in its 5th year, the goal of this year’s programme is to place over 100 students in labs at UCL, Imperial and Kings. The scheme is very successful, with 80% of former students gaining places at UK universities (compared with around 17% in this demographic nationwide) – but a key to this success is finding labs that are happy to act as hosts. This occurs for 2 weeks in July-August, is a great experience for a senior PhD student or postdoc, and involves no additional administrative duties. Students can shadow group members, talk to PIs/postdocs/students in other labs, watch demonstrations, analyse data, or get involved in any other task which is appropriate. In2scienceUK will organize the placement, interview and select the students, and complete any necessary paperwork.
If you or someone in your lab would like to make a real difference to the prospects of these young people please contact Rebecca McKelvey More...
