This review showcases a cross-section of the extraordinary work of our community over the last year, and celebrates the huge variety and impact of our activity across and between disciplines. In a year where the ongoing uncertainty of the pandemic affected us all, our students and staff nonetheless made huge contributions in areas from cancer treatment, dementia research and space science to climate change and social sciences.
The autumn of 2021 also saw the launch of our consultation towards a new five-year strategy to focus our work from 2022-2027, and ensure that, as we emerge from the pandemic, we capitalise on our strengths and expertise across the university and make a real difference in tackling some of the world’s greatest challenges. We welcome comments about our strategic plans as part of that consultation process.
I hope you’ll enjoy finding out more about our work in these pages.
