Project StORe: Biochemistry report
Biochemistry departments at UK universities were invited to take part in the Project StORe questionnaire. Potential sites were identified by using the list of departments submitting to the 1996 Research Assessment Exercise under Unit of Assessment 12: Biochemistry available at http://www.hero.ac.uk/sites/hero/rae/rae96/1_96/t12.html. The 1996 listing was used as this distinct Unit of Assessment for Biochemistry was discontinued during RAE 2001. A total of 10 departments were selected and the contact details of members of academic and research staff and research level students were identified using the institutions’ websites. The questionnaire was sent by email to a total of 505 contacts (this figure excludes ‘bounced’ messages) during March 2006 (see Appendix), with a follow up email sent to non-respondents a week before the closure of the questionnaire in the first week of April 2006. This draft report highlights the main findings from the work.
