Professor Chris Paraskeva Retiring at the end of July 2017

14 July 2017

The current Head of School for The School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, Professor Chris Paraskeva, will be retiring from his role at the end of July 2017.

Chris has been with the University since April 1985 and began his time in CMM (known as the Department of Pathology at the time) as a Lecturer and then a Lecturer in Pathology. 

Over time Chris developed his specialism into the area of bowel cancer, where he continued to progress and became a Professor in Experimental Oncology in 1990.  He then took up the position of Head of School from August 2013. 

The School is holding a party in the Royal Fort Gardens on Thurs 27 July at 3.30pm to celebrate his time here at the University.  Staff and PG students are welcome to come along, we will have Pimms and strawberries, plus other soft drinks and nibbles.

The School is, of course, sad to see him leave, but we all wish him well for a long and happy retirement.
