On Sunday 25th February, we are holding a 'Memorial Celebration' of Mary Moore, Principal of St Hilda's from 1980 - 1990. This will be attended by members of Mary's family, her former colleagues and students, and friends of the College who collaborated with Mary in her work here during her years as Principal.
Dr Maike Glitsch, Fellow and Tutor in Medicine, and Dr Yvonne Couch, Junior Research Fellow in Medicine, have secured research funding of £114,000 from the ISSF and the Rosetrees Trust for a joint project to look at a potential role for a pH-sensing protein in contributing to gender-differences in recovery from stroke in a mouse model.
