Many congratulations to Dr Peter Campbell who has been elected as a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences. The award honours scientists whose research has advanced medical science, delivered cutting-edge research discoveries, and produced benefits for patients and wider society. This year 50 Fellows were chosen from 413 candidates. Dr Campbell said “I am delighted to become a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences, it is a great honour to be recognised in this way. However, this award really belongs to my colleagues and collaborators here at the Sanger Institute and worldwide. Cancer is a massively complex interplay of genetic interactions that requires large-scale collaboration across to continents to investigate and analyse. I am grateful to everyone I have worked with over the years, and hope that our work will lay the foundations of understanding that will deliver improved treatment and prevention of this terrible disease.” Read the full article on the Sanger Institute website.
