Royal London’s top cancer professor made Fellow of Sciences Academy
A leading research professor at the Royal London’s medical school has been made a Fellow of the UK Academy of Medical Sciences for treating cancer.
Prof Bart Vanhaesebroeck is one of only 40 researchers in the country to be given the award for his contributions to the advancement of medical science.
His research focuses on the way cells within the body ‘communicate with each other’ and how this process can go wrong and cause disease.
New drugs are now being trialed to treat lymphoma and allergies as a result of his research.
He said: “This fellowship provides inspiration to continue our efforts in translating knowledge from the laboratory to the clinic.”
Prof Vanhaesebroeck is being formally admitted to the Academy at a ceremony on June 29 to join Britain’s leading medical scientists from hospitals, academia, industry and the public service.
