When you have concerns or suggestions, or need help

Do you have a concern about life in the Institute?

Or perhaps you have a suggestion for an improvement that could benefit others too?


There are several ways you can act:

  • Speak to your group leader or other line manager
  • Speak to your mentor
  • Speak to the Director (Daniel St Johnston) or the Business & Operations Manager (Helen Lonergan) who are always available to discuss confidential issues 
  • Send a suggestion or concern by email to  and the message will be forwarded to the most appropriate person in charge
  • Submit an anonymous suggestion or concern on paper to the Equality Working Group pigeonhole outside the Admin office.

There is a specific Student Complaints Procedure for University-registered students at all levels who have a complaint - note that the procedure suggests you attempt to resolve issues at the local level, i.e. here in the Institute as your host institution, in the first instance.

Confidential, independent and impartial advice is also available to all University students (i.e. including graduate students) from the Students' Unions' Advice Service  based in Mill Lane. 

Studying development to understand disease

The Gurdon Institute is funded by Wellcome and Cancer Research UK to study the biology of development, and how normal growth and maintenance go wrong in cancer and other diseases.
