On Friday 12 September 2014, over 70 alumni and former staff as well as current staff and students gathered at the Dental Hospital for an enjoyable evening celebrating 21 years since the Biomedical Materials course started.

The evening was an opportunity for alumni to reminisce and catch-up with fellow classmates, lecturers and talk to current students about what the course is like now. Peter Marquis who started the course in 1993 gave a speech and of course it wouldn’t have been a birthday party without a delicious cake, in the style of a hip replacement handmade by the Dental School’s very own Jo Batt.

Alumni also had the opportunity to tour the Biomaterials unit and Dental School one last time before we move buildings to the former Pebble Mill site in autumn 2015.

After the evening reception, several alumni and staff went on to have a curry in Birmingham City Centre to carry on the celebrations.
