About this Event
We wish to announce that Professor Karl Kadler, Professor of Biochemistry, has decided to retire from the University at the end of October 2022. Karl has made an outstanding academic contribution to the University over the course of nearly 33 years. Following his recruitment from the US to Manchester in 1989, he has been instrumental in the ongoing success of the Wellcome Centre for Cell-Matrix Research and the growth of a vibrant and internationally recognised centre of research excellence in cell-matrix biology.
Karl has made seminal discoveries in the field of collagen research where his research has shown how cells build tissues rich in extracellular collagen fibrils. His research has benefitted from the pioneering use of enabling technologies and he has successfully led numerous equipment bids to support electron microscopy at Manchester. He has held multiple leadership positions within the University, including Director of the Wellcome Cell-Matrix Centre and Director of the Cellular and Developmental Systems Domain. During the course of his career, he has published more than 172 publications (original research articles, reviews and book chapters) and has earned an H-index of 53. He was recently awarded the Fell-Muir prize by the British Society of Matrix Biology to recognise his outstanding contributions to matrix biology.
To celebrate his illustrious career and to recognise his achievements here at the University, we are organising a celebration event on the afternoon of the 12th October. Details to follow in due course.
I am sure you will join me in wishing Karl a happy, healthy and long retirement.
