IMED leader one of 48 new fellows recognised for the advancement of medical science in the UK
Each year the Academy of Medical Sciences elect a small number of UK scientists to their Fellowship in recognition of their contribution to the advancement of medical science. Potential Academy Fellows are nominated for election based on their excellence in medical research, their innovative application of scientific knowledge or for their service to healthcare.
Earlier today, it was announced that Mene Pangalos, Executive Vice President of our Innovative Medicines and Early Development Biotech Unit, has been elected as one of just 48 new Fellows - out of more than 350 nominations.
On hearing the news, Mene commented: “It’s a great honour to be elected as a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences. I am looking forward to working with the Fellowship to drive greater connections between academia, industry and the NHS and to develop new ways to inspire the next generation of UK scientists.”
The new Fellows will be formally admitted to the Academy at a ceremony on Wednesday 1 July 2015.
