SUMMARY OF PARTICULAR AREAS OF INTEREST

A small number of stories generated much of the press coverage this month. Leading the field was a story about how different races coped differently with a cancer diagnosis which was picked by the regional press in particular as well as ethnic media. Professor Martin Gill generated national and regional media coverage from his research into identity theft and the risk posed by unused polling cards The continuing European interest in a Mars mission also excited press coverage with Professor Mark Sims being cited in national and regional media The Genetics department anniversary celebrations led to features in The Guardian and the Leicester Mercury. Expert comment, particularly from John Williams (Sociology) earned the University a place in national press, particularly an Observer supplement on the Heysel stadium disaster.
