New beginnings

​By Nicole Lim, Editor, The LKCMedicine

August is an exciting time at LKCMedicine. We’ve just welcomed our new dean, Professor James Best, who has taken over the reins from Professor Dermot Kelleher.

We’ve also welcomed our second cohort of 78 students. They’ve survived IntroDOCtion, the contagion-themed freshies’ week planned by the seniors, and matriculated in style on 4 August 2014.

In this issue, get to know some of the Class of 2019 and meet four of its scholars. Turn to the backpage to get the LKCMedicine MedSoc’s tips on surviving varsity life.

Be inspired by our Visiting Professor Per-Olof Berggren, who talks about his novel research into better treatments for diabetes and hear what a day in the life of our London-based colleagues is like.

We also have updates on the latest events and happenings at the School and much much more!
