Congratulations to the ten Fellows of the Academy of Medical Sciences elected to the Royal Society in 2021.
Sir Adrian Smith, President of the Royal Society, said:
"This is the first year of my presidency at the Royal Society and I’ve been very much looking forward to welcoming the newly elected Fellows and Foreign Members.
"The global pandemic has demonstrated the continuing importance of scientific thinking and collaboration across borders. Each Fellow and Foreign Member bring their area of scientific expertise to the Royal Society and when combined, this expertise supports the use of science for the benefit of humanity.
