Great news for Queen's University Belfast

I have just heard from my old chum Stefan Andreasson that Queen's University Belfast has joined the prestigious Russell Group. For those who do not know the group, it is essentially a lobbying body representing the top (now) 20 research-led universities in Britain, including Birmingham, Cambridge, Manchester, Oxford, Sheffield, UCL....and Newcastle, of course. QUB's recognition as a member of this club is long overdue. I'm delighted.
