The winter issue of Lumen celebrates not only the achievement and academic excellence of our alumni but showcases the impact of some of the world-changing and unique insights being delivered by our leading researchers.

Read how scientists at the Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing (IPAS) are harnessing the power of light to make the world a safer and healthier place, and discover some of the key areas where the Centre for Automotive Safety Research (CASR) is helping to drive the road safety agenda.

We also put the spotlight on some of our brightest and best students, who with your invaluable support have been given the opportunity to meet their full academic potential through scholarships.

Some of our alumni in this issue have reached their potential through very interesting and non-linear pathways, like Corinna Steeb, who moved from the world of medical science to become CEO of Prancing Pony Brewery and Ezani Farhana Md Monoto who successfully juggles a career in dentistry with her life as a celebrity chef.

And we are proud to feature a family agricultural science dynasty that started here in the 1960s with one of our first female graduates in that field, Mary Thomas.

The common and inspirational theme among these stories is the love of life-long learning that the University instils in its students and the resulting graduate attributes such as critical thinking, problem solving and leadership that facilitate their long term success.

I hope you enjoy reading this issue of Lumen.

Professor Warren Bebbington
Vice-Chancellor and President
