RA6a: Additional observations, Evidence of esteem
RA6a Evidence of peer esteem: External research funding, now at ~£22.8m (~£451k per research-active staff member) rose by 30% during the year following the Biochemistry/Biological Sciences merger. Brown, Heath, Hotchin, Michell and Trayer have held non-fellowship five-year grants during the review period (Wellcome Trust (3); MRC (3); CRC (2)). All research-active staff have received recognitions of their research distinction and service to the scientific community and the most significant of these are detailed below:
