The Annual Alumni Reunion 2022
Join us on Saturday 10th of September on campus to celebrate at this year’s Annual Alumni Reunion!
All alumni are welcome, and a special invitation is extended to those of you from the class years of 1982, 1992, 1997 & 2002 who this year celebrate respective 40, 30, 25 & 20 year anniversaries since graduating from the University of Sheffield.
Come back to campus to revisit your student days, catch up with old friends, and see how Sheffield has changed.
Take your pick from a selection of daytime activities, including an exclusive campus tour, mini lectures from our leading academics and a delicious two-course hot buffet lunch in the University’s award winning restaurant, INOX Dine.
In the evening, slip on your dancing shoes and meet up with old classmates for a special celebration dinner in Firth Hall, followed by a live band and DJ, with throwback tunes that are guaranteed to get you hitting the dance floor. Afterwards, if you’re not all boogied out, head over to the Students’ Union to relive your student days at Pop Tarts Reunited.
Alumni are welcome to bring non-alumni guests.

- Dr Megan Blake: Tackling the problem of food insecurity: causes, effects and interventions
Dr Blake is an expert in food security and food justice. Her research considers the dimensions of food insecurity focusing on economically wealthy nations. Hear how this work considers both the causes of insecurity as they play out across the four pillars identified by the United Nations (access, affordability, utilisation, and consistency) and the effects (poor health, reduced well-being, social isolation, and constrained capability to cope).
- Dr Munitta Muthana: Building a magnetic 'Trojan Horse’ cancer treatment to fight cancer
Dr Muthana is working to develop ‘trojan horse’ drugs that can be injected into patients’ blood to attack breast, prostate and other cancer. Importantly, they have designed these drugs so that they can be targeted specifically to the tumour using magnetic navigation.
This targeted approach not only shields the drug by providing a 'coat of armour' before their progress can be blocked by immune defences, it also prevents harm to healthy tissue and organs. To date, their studies have focused on laboratory models with very encouraging results and we now need to take the next steps to bring this technique to a state where it can be administered to humans.
12.30pm - Two course buffet lunch including Pimms on arrival - INOX Dine
