Professor Roberts – Dean FHMS
I am pleased to announce that Professor Lisa Roberts has been appointed Dean of the Faculty of Health & Medical Science.
Professor Roberts was previously head of the Department of Microbial and Cellular Sciences and a Professor of Virology. Professor Roberts was appointed to the position of Dean and member of the Executive Board from a very strong field of international candidates.
Professor Roberts joined the University in 1998 as a Lecturer in Virology. Prior to joining the University of Surrey, she worked as a Product Development Manager for Proctor & Gamble and undertook her PhD at the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council in the Institute for Animal Health. Professor Roberts has a 1st class BSc (Hons) in Medical Microbiology from the University of Birmingham.
Professor Roberts’ tenure as Dean commenced on the 1st May 2012. I am very grateful to Professor Ian Kitchen who has undertaken the role of Interim Dean prior to the new Dean taking up the post, following Professor John Hay’s departure.
Professor Sir Christopher Snowden
