Comment from Academy Fellows

If you would like to speak to one of our Fellows for comment on a particular story please contact the Press Office.  You can search for individual Fellows and their research areas using the searchable Fellows directory.

The Academy’s Fellows are drawn from laboratory science, clinical academic medicine, veterinary science, dentistry, medical and nursing care and other professions allied to medical science.

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.
