JLC Newsletter December 2020 edition

Wrapping up the year we will not forget and looking forward to a brighter 2021...

Though grappling with the many challenges that came with the threat of the pandemic, lock-down, working from home and the changing environment for universities, we have continued to produce high quality research and demonstrate the impact of our work. We have had extraordinary grant success  in the past year, and we published many articles (listed on our publications page). The ethos of our Centre, which has been developed and nurtured over many years, has carried us through this difficult year.
