To celebrate the Academy’s 20th birthday, we have put together a snapshot of 20 of our biggest impacts. To find out more about our 20th celebrations and our future plans, read this blog by our President Professor Sir Robert Lechler, and follow #AMS20 on social media.
The Academy would like to thank all our funders, partners and collaborators, without whom none of this work would be possible.
#19 Building an influential brain trust
“Coming together in the Fellowship gives us a more powerful voice; together we can stand up for medical science and help support the next generation of researchers.”
Professor Susan Wray FMedSci, University of Liverpool
Over the last 20 years the Academy Fellowship has grown to 1200 of the brightest and best in medical science. Fellows are drawn from laboratory science, clinical academic medicine, veterinary science, dentistry, medical and nursing care, and other professions allied to medical science including ethics, social science and the law.
The diversity of talent amongst our Fellows ensures that the Academy is able to deal with complex health issues, which extend beyond the traditional boundaries of medicine. It is their knowledge, influence and resources that are the Academy’s most powerful assets.
