Professors Patricia Munroe, Steve Thornton and Chris Griffiths have all been recognised for their innovative research in their respective fields of molecular medicine, obstetrics and primary care.

Each scientist has been noted by the Academy of Medical Sciences to have made a significant contribution in advancing medical science and helped both patients and wider society through their research.

Fifty biomedical and health scientists were chosen to be elected by The Academy of Medical Sciences to its respected and influential Fellowship, out of a total of 384 candidates.

The Queen Mary scientists have been recognised alongside other notable inductees such as Professor Jonathan Nguyen-Van-Tam, the UK Government’s Deputy Chief Medical Officer.

Professor Dame Anne Johnson PMedSci, President of the Academy of Medical Sciences, said: “I am truly delighted to welcome these 50 new Fellows to the Academy’s Fellowship, and I offer my congratulations to each of them on their exceptional contribution to biomedical and health science. The knowledge, skill and influence that each brings to the Fellowship is the Academy’s most powerful asset.

“Although it is hard to look beyond the pandemic right now, I want to stress how important it is that the Academy Fellowship represents the widest diversity of biomedical and health sciences. The greatest health advances rely on the findings of many types of research, and on multidisciplinary teams and cross-sector and global collaboration.”
