St Peter's sweeps RDM Excellent Supervision Awards

Two researchers with St Peter's connections have swept the board at the 2020 Radcliffe Department of Medicine (RDM) Excellent Supervision Awards.

Dr Adam Lewandowski, who is a Research Fellow at the college, and Professor Adam Mead, who is an alumnus (1991), were recognised at this year's RDM awards following an impressive number of nominations by a range of people from graduate students to research assistants, postdoctoral researchers, clinician scientists, research fellows and consultants. All were unanimous in their praise of both supervisors for their mentorship and pastoral care, the time they devote to their students and lab in general, their leadership and their passion for their science.

A British Heart Foundation Fellow, Adam is currently pursuing postdoctoral research within the team at the Oxford Cardiovascular Clinical Research Facility (CCRF), which is to understand how best to reduce the risk of hypertension and stroke that is observed in those born preterm or following pregnancy complications such as preeclampsia. 

Adam Mead is Professor of Haematology at the RDM and an MCR Senior Clinical Fellow. His research is focused on understanding how the normal haematopoietic stem/progenitor hierarchy is disrupted during the development of myeloid malignancies.
