Alison Banham"In 2012, my HoD supported my nomination for the University’s Academic Leadership Course, which provided a valuable opportunity to network and helped me decide that I would like to undertake future leadership roles. I successfully applied for the position of Deputy Head of NDCLS in 2013 and have enjoyed the opportunity to be more actively involved in leadership, including roles in RDM where I sit on the Management Committee and Chair the Mentoring Committee. My achievements have recently been recognised with a promotion to Head of NDCLS in 2014."  

Prof Alison Banham FRCPath, Head of Nuffield Division of Clinical Laboratory Sciences


Leanne Hodson crop"During my career I have experienced very good support from researchers and colleagues in RDM; they have provided excellent advice and encouragement on where to go next in my career and the steps I need to take. I initially came to Oxford on a two year fellowship, not knowing how long I would last. I am still here, doing what I am passionate about 11 years later. The University of Oxford provides a stimulating work environment, I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in biomedical science.” 

Prof Leanne Hodson, Associate Professor of Diabetes and Metabolism & BHF Intermediate Fellow, Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism
