5 March 2012

The Council has received the comments on the title of the Professorship by Professor A. W. F. Edwards at the Discussion on 7 February 2012 (Reporter, p. 460) of this Report. It notes that the University has established other MRC Research Professorships. It has consulted the General Board who have confirmed that the person for whom the Professorship is to be established wishes the title to be that set out in the Report. The Board wish to make clear that the inclusion of the word Research in the title follows the wording of the relevant MRC scheme and does not imply the creation of a new category of Professor, as suggested by Professor Edwards.
