Recently, Professor Richard Barker, Director of CASMI, has been awarded an Honorary Fellowship for his continual and long-standing leadership in the biopharmaceutical industry. The British Pharmacology Society awards both Fellowships and Honorary Fellowships each year.
An Honorary Fellowship is the highest award that can be given by the society. Those awarded are nominated by society members, and are renowned by their continued leadership roles in science. This year’s awards were presented by Professor David Webb, President of the British Pharmacological Society, during Pharmacology 2016, the society’s annual conference, which was held in London between 13-15 December.
Richard said: “It is great to be recognised by the pharmacology community – one so vital for the translational task on which CASMI is focused.”
He now joins an esteemed list of the society’s Honorary Fellows, including Professor Colin Blakemore of the School of Advanced Study, Dr June Raine of the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency, and Lord Sainsbury, Chancellor of the University of Cambridge.
Congratulations to Richard!
