The School of Life Sciences Athena SWAN Committee have been successful in obtaining a Wellcome Institutional Strategic Support Fund (ISSF) grant to develop Equality and Diversity teaching resource for our undergraduate students.

The aim of this project is to improve student awareness of equality and diversity issues, and better equip them to personally overcome barriers they may face in their careers.

Head of School Professor Simon Guild said: "This is fantastic news and I extend a warm well done to SAT co-chairs Dr Nicola Veitch and Dr Stewart White on their successful application for funding.

"This success shows the credibility and strength of our education scholarship and research."
