Happy New Year from BioNews and from the Progress Educational Trust (PET)!

We begin the year with some big news - as reported elsewhere on BioNews today, the leading scientist Professor Robin Lovell-Badge has been appointed our new Chair of Trustees. We couldn't be more excited to have Robin at the helm, given the leading role he has played in so many of the areas of research and treatment that PET covers (and especially, in recent weeks, genome editing).

We are sorry to bid farewell to the brilliant Fiona Fox, who has served as our chair of trustees since 2014 and who remains a force to be reckoned with. We will continue to collaborate with Fiona, in her capacity as a member of our advisory committee.

Meanwhile, PET has a packed programme of public events taking place in Edinburgh, Birmingham and London over the next few weeks and months.

Click on the links above for further information, and please email to book places or make enquiries.

Finally, please note that PET is a small charity that punches well above its weight, and can only continue to do so in 2019 with your support. There are several ways in which you can help.

  • You can support us by becoming a Friend of PET as detailed here, and giving us a regular donation.

  • You can make a one-off donation online here (please don't be put off by the photo!), or by texting PROG23 £10 (or any other amount) to 70070.

  • You can send a cheque, payable to 'Progress Educational Trust', to 'Progress Educational Trust, 140 Gray's Inn Road, London WC1X 8AX'.

You can even help us raise funds without giving us any of your own hard-earned cash. All you need to do is remember, every time you shop on Amazon, to use this link to get to the Amazon website before making any purchases (or alternatively, click on the Amazon logo on the right-hand side of the BioNews website).
