Athena SWAN

Molecular and Cell Biology Athena SWAN Self-Assessment Team

The Department formed a new Athena SWAN Self-Assessment Team (SAT) in August 2015 with representation from SAT members of both former departments.  It is anticipated that the combined experience of the team involved in two separate successful Bronze submissions will enable the transition to the Silver award to be achieved by 2017. The Silver application has been submitted and we look forward to hearing about the outcome in April 2018.

The agenda will be published on this site ahead of the next meeting; please feel free to send your comments or to raise any issues with Sally Prigent. Email:
