Peter Horby, who work on Ebola has been the subject of keen interest recently, is now Professor of Emerging Infectious Diseases and Global Health.
Robert Gilbert, whose work on protein science and structural biology focusses on the molecular mechanisms underlying human pathology, has been appointed Professor of Biophysics, while Simon Travis and Jay Berkley have been appointed Professor of Clinical Gastroenterology and Professor of Paediatric Infection Diseases, respectively.
Professor Berkley leads a research group on infection and inflammation in childhood malnutrition in Kenya, and Professor Travis is a consultant physician and a group head of research group studying ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.
