Cambridge Institute for Medical Research


CIMR’s Director, Prof. Julian Rayner has been elected as a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences. This prestigious honour is in recognition of Prof. Rayner’s ongoing contributions and leadership in malaria research. Prof. Rayner said: “Malaria is a devastating and too often forgotten disease that still kills more than half a million children every year. Tackling it requires deep collaboration and working across disciplines. I’m enormously honoured by this announcement, which reflects not my work but the work of all the talented people I’ve been lucky enough to host in my lab, and collaborations with friends and colleagues across the world”.

“I’m excited to become a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences because I strongly share their conviction that science is not just for scientists. I believe that dialogue, learning and public engagement are all fundamental and essential parts of the research process, and I look forward to contributing to their leading role in these areas.”
