  • Former Darwin College student, Alki Alevropoulou-Malli, has recently published a book about the Greek refugee crisis. Written in both English and German, this documentary photo-book aims to document and tell the story of those trapped in the refugee settlement of Idomeni, along the Greek-North Macedonian border, in 2016. Using a combination of photographs, stories & direct quotes from residents as well as sociological findings, the authors provide insight into the daily life of people living in the camp and their constant fight for their voices to be heard, while advocating for the more dignified and humane treatment of Europe's displaced communities. This project is supported by the Initiative Minderheiten Tirol and has been published by Mandelbaum Verlag.The book can be ordered directly and 10% of proceeds of the book sold directly through this website will be donated to charities still active in Greece. 

  • DNA holds the instructions our cells need to grow, develop, divide and, eventually, even to die. This information is fragile and it can be damaged by toxic agents such as sunlight or chemicals (cigarettes, alcohol, etc.). Normally, our cells can cope with these hazards, but if the damage is not repaired correctly, it can cause a range of diseases including cancer. Using electron cryo-microscopy, Dr Pablo Alcón, Darwin College Research Associate, and Dr Shabih Shakeel from Dr Lori Passmore's group at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology have visualized the structure of the activated FANCD2-FANCI complex (D2I).
