#BeBoldForChange: strive for excellence together

MarysiaProfessor Marysia Placzek Ph.D, Department of Biomedical Science

"For women and men alike, to succeed in biology and biomedical science means to strive for excellence. It has been, and continues to be, my pleasure to contribute to The Bateson Centre, a vibrant hub within the University at the interface of the Faculties of Science, in particular Biomedical Science, and Medicine, Dentistry and Health.

"Here, basic and clinician scientists work together to learn from, and value each other. The excitement of working in a research-intensive cohort that crosses faculties is tangible, and the Centre attracts outstanding young recruits from across the globe.

"It is a pleasure to mentor these fantastic individuals, women and men alike.

"Our high-flying recruits have gone on to win prestigious fellowship and awards, and our research hub now protects them, providing them with every opportunity to continue their successful research careers. By valuing our differences, we have a centre with unique strengths. By working together, we ensure the future and inspire our undergraduates with compelling research-led teaching."
