Congratulations to Adam Mead and Peter McHugh, who were awarded the title of full professor in the recent Recognition of Distinction.

Adam mead and peter mchugh

This is a huge achievement and reflects the excellence of their research achievements and also their commitment to teaching and ‘good citizenship’ within our Institute and beyond.

Prof Adam Mead, Professor of Haematology, leads a team investigating how the normal haematopoietic stem/progenitor hierarchy is disrupted during the development of myeloid malignancies. The overarching aim of his research group is to improve the management of myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN), chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) and related conditions through better characterisation and therapeutic targeting of malignant stem and progenitor cell populations. Adam is a Consultant Haematologist and an MRC Senior Clinical Fellow at the Radcliffe Department of Medicine.

Prof Peter McHugh, Professor of Molecular Oncology, researches DNA damage and repair mechanisms. His research group is interested in how these processes take place in normal, healthy cells, but also how they are used by cancer cells to resist treatment and repair their DNA. He is particularly interested in inter-strand crosslinks and a specific family of DNA repair nucleases. Peter is a Professor in the Department of Oncology.

Many congratulations as well to Dr Anindita Roy, now Associate Professor of Paediatrics Haematology (Department of Paediatrics); and Dr David Sims, now a University Research Lecturer (MRC WIMM Centre for Computational Biology and Radcliffe Department of Medicine).
