Professor Iain McInnes elected Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences
The AMS is an independent body in the UK representing the breadth of medical sciences – from biological sciences and dentistry to public health and nursing, as well as other professions that underpin these disciplines, such as physics, mathematics and chemistry.
Its vision is to improve health through research and acts as a champion for excellent research and researchers. The AMS has more than 850 Fellows drawn from hospitals, academia, industry and public services - such Fellows are among the UK’s leading scientists.
Together, the Fellows of the AMS act as a unique resource for independent, expert advice on medical science policy and career development.
McInnes, along with 44 other Fellows, will be officially admitted to the AMS at a ceremony in London on 27 June.
McInnes said: “I am especially delighted and honoured to have been elected a Fellow of the AMS.
“As an organisation, the AMS plays a very important role in promoting excellence in research in the medical sciences that has a direct benefit on people’s health in the UK and around the world. I very much look forward to making my contribution to the AMS’s objectives.”
Professor Anna Dominiczak, Head of the College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences at the University of Glasgow, said: “This is a well-deserved recognition for Iain and reflects his standing within the medical community in the UK. I congratulate him warmly on his election.”
Later this year, the AMS will be holding a special Fellows discussion dinner at the University of Glasgow on 12 November which will be preceded by an open meeting of Fellows reporting on the Academy’s team science project.
