The St George’s, University of London Annual Review 2011 (www.review.sgul.ac.uk) has been published and is available exclusively online.

The mission of St George’s is to advance, promote and share knowledge of health through excellence in teaching, clinical practice and research into the prevention and treatment of illness. The latest annual review highlights 2011 activities and achievements that are helping St George’s to realise its ambitions.

The review focuses on developments to the University’s education provision in the UK and internationally, pioneering research projects that have the potential to improve people’s health, and just some of the ways in which St George’s is helping to enhance communities by sharing knowledge, skills and expertise.

Principal Professor Peter Kopelman says:

“The year 2011 heralded the biggest changes in funding for universities in living memory and potentially the most radical shake up of the NHS. At St George’s, working with our partners,  we made great strides in implementing strategies that will allow us to capitalise on the opportunities these changes present in order to continue delivering education and research that launch successful careers and positively contribute to worldwide health.

“We continued to prioritise the development of our education provision, which included the introduction of new facilities and courses, and our scientists made important discoveries that have the potential to improve the treatment of serious conditions. We also delivered in our commitment to share knowledge, expertise and opportunities. This annual review provides evidence for these achievements.”
