CANCER GRAND CHALLENGES COMMUNITY RECOGNISED FOR SCIENTIFIC EXCELLENCE IN RECENT FELLOWSHIP ELECTIONS
18 May 2020
We’re delighted to congratulate members of the Cancer Grand Challenges community recently elected to several prestigious organisations.
I’m extremely grateful for this international recognition for the work we’re carrying out to better understand how cancers evolve in the body. By looking at how tumours change and grow over time, we’re searching for weaknesses in this process which could become targets for new treatments.
Professor Charlie Swanton
I did my postdoctoral training in the US and remain connected to the US immunology community. I am deeply honoured to receive this recognition from them – it means a lot. Individual recognition like this always involves the work of many others. I am so grateful to the outstanding members of my lab and collaborators I have had the privilege to work with.
Professor Fiona Powrie
And finally, Professor Kevin Brindle (Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute), Co-Investigator on the Cancer Grand Challenges Rosetta team was among some 60 scientists elected as Fellows of the Royal Society for their exceptional contributions to science. The Fellowship of the Royal Society is made up of the most eminent scientists, engineers and technologists in the UK and the Commonwealth.
