Did you have a favourite lecturer or professor at University? Well this group of alumni did, and his name is Emeritus Professor George Rogers (pictured in the centre of the hug); and every year, wherever they are in the world, a group of George’s former students and postdocs make every effort to travel back to the University from across the globe to have lunch in December. In fact, George (who is now 91) has supervised so many PhD students he doesn’t quite know how many in total, but one thing is for sure, anyone who went through George’s biochemistry lab has become a member of this legendary alumni family.

Unfortunately this year Lynn Rogers, bio-chemistry lecturer (and George’s wife) couldn’t make it, but you can catch her in the lab in 2019, teaching medical and science students. In fact, she just won the University’s 2018 Student-led teaching award.
