Congratulations to Dr Helen Marriott

The department is pleased to welcome Dr Helen Marriott into the department as a new lecturer. Helen has contributed to the life and science of the department for many years and has developed excellent research with publications in superb journals. She has also achieved major funding from Research Councils and other funding bodies and contributes significantly to teaching. The department recently advertised for a Lecturer in Respiratory Infection to compliment a key strategic vision of the department to build its work in host-pathogen interactions in association with the Florey Institute, and it is to this role that Helen has been appointed. Prof Sabroe, on announcing the appointment, said 'The department is lucky to have her, and we are very pleased for her'.
