In their Report on the establishment of certain fixed-term Professorships (Reporter, 2002-03, p. 519), the General Board proposed, inter alia, the establishment of a Professorship of Molecular Cell Biology for Professor M.

The recommendations of this Report were approved by Grace 2 of 12 March 2003.

2. The Wellcome Trust have renewed the funding for Professor Robinson's Principal Research Fellowship for a further period to 20 June 2019. The School of Clinical Medicine have agreed to meet the cost of the Professorship for the remainder of Professor Robinson's tenure, for the period from 1 July 2019 to 30 September 2019.

3. The General Board accordingly recommend the re-establishment of the Professorship of Molecular Cell Biology from 1 July 2009 for the duration of Professor Robinson's tenure.

4. The General Board recommend:

That the Professorship of Molecular Cell Biology, established by Grace 2 of 12 March 2003, be re-established from 1 July 2009 for the tenure of Professor M. S. Robinson, placed in Schedule B of the Statutes, and assigned to the Department of Clinical Biochemistry.
