  • The College is deeply saddened to report the death of Professor Jennifer Clack, Fellow of Darwin College since 1997, who was one of the world's most distinguished vertebrate palaeontologists.

  • A new study has provided the most comprehensive analysis of human genetic diversity to date, clarifying the genetic relationships between human populations around the world. "Studying the patterns of Neanderthal ancestry in present-day humans hints at the structure of human communities more than 50,000 years ago. It is remarkable that patterns of Neanderthal ancestry are so similar in populations around the world today, and may have derived from a single Neanderthal population," said Dr Aylwyn Scally, Darwin College Fellow and a researcher in the Department of Genetics who was involved in the study.

  • The race is on to find a vaccine against the new COVID-19 coronavirus. Professor Jonathan Heeney, co-Vice-Master of Darwin College, explains why a cautious approach is needed and how his team is using new technology developed for influenza and Ebola viruses to target the new infection.
