Congratulations to Pembroke Fellow and Professor of Chemistry, Ben Davis FRS MAE, who has been elected for his outstanding contributions to advancing medical science and cutting edge research discoveries. He has been selected for his continued research into the development of molecular methods, and direct reprogramming of complex biological molecules to elucidate and control biological function and mechanism, in vitro and in vivo, beyond the limits of genetics.

Alongside Professor Davis, seven other scientists were also elected Fellows of the Academy, all who have made significant contributions to medical science through outstanding leadership, public engagement and supporting the career advancement of junior trainees. Together, these scientists are amongst 50 of the UK's world-leading researchers elected to join the prestigious Fellowship of the Academy of Medical Sciences this year.

Professor Sir Robert Lechler PMedSci, President of the Academy of Medical Sciences said:

“The Academy’s Fellowship is a unique assembly of the finest minds in biomedical and health research, from across the UK and beyond. Our Fellows are at the centre of all that we do, from supporting early career researchers via our hugely popular mentorship programme to incorporating public and patient views into health research. Their collective wisdom is a national asset to guide research and policy aimed at tackling pressing health challenges.”
