Prof Penadés made RSE Fellow

Everyone at the Institute of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation extends warm congratulations to Professor José Penadés on his prestigious The Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE) fellowship award.

Created in 1783 by Royal Charter, RSE is an educational charity, registered in Scotland, operating on a wholly independent and non-party-political basis and providing public benefit as Scotland's national academy of science and letters

Their fellowship includes people from a wide range of disciplines – science & technology, arts, humanities, social science, business and public service - and comprises leading thinkers whose work has a significant impact on our nation.

There are three key criteria against which candidates will be assessed and which demonstrate the excellence the RSE seeks: outstanding achievement, professional standing, and societal contribution.

The nominations process opens in February and closes on 31 May each year, with the assessment process carried out from July to November and the final list of candidates approved by the RSE Council at its December meeting.

Proposed new Fellows are then put to a ballot of the Fellowship, after which successful candiates are informed of their election in the Spring. 

The Institute's Professor Penadés was amongst the 2020 intake, including seven University of Glasgow academics, of whom two - Dr Katie Hampson and Professor Jill Morrison - are College of MVLS colleagues.

Professor Penadés tweeted: "I would like to acknowledge all the people who made this this possible: current and former PhD students and post-docs, as well as all the amazing people I had to opportunity to collaborate with: Iñigo Lasa, Alberto Marina, Ross Fitzgerald, John Chen, and Richard Novick.

"And I don't want to forget the bacteriologists at the Institute of Infection, Immunity & Inflammation: Olwyn Byron, Gill Douce, Andy Roe, Donal Wall, Dan Walker, Hua Wang, and Robert. Thanks for your support and infinite patience! I love you all!"
