Professor Jack Cuzick elected as Fellow of the Royal Society
Professor Jack Cuzick from Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) has been elected as a new Fellow of the Royal Society. The election is in recognition of his achievements in the application of basic science discoveries to the practice of medicine, particularly preventive medicine in cancer.
The Royal Society is the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence, dating back to the 1660s, with a purpose of recognising, promoting, and supporting excellence in science and encouraging the development and use of science for the benefit of humanity.
I'm delighted to be elected as Fellow of the Royal Society. It is a huge honour to be part of such a historic and influential scientific institution. This election is also an important step in helping preventive medicine to be recognised as a serious scientific endeavour.
Science will continue to play a crucial role as we tackle some of the great challenges of our time including food, energy, health and the environment. The scientists elected to the Fellowship are leaders who have advanced their fields through their ground breaking work. We are delighted to welcome them to the Royal Society.
