We are delighted and proud that three Darwinians have been appointed Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in the New Year’s Honours List.

Honorary Fellow and alumna Professor Liz Robertson (PhD Genetics 1978), whose pioneering work in developmental genetics demonstrated that genetically altered embryonic stem cells could introduce mutations into the germline of mice, receives the CBE for Services to Medical Science.

Alumna Professor Ann Prentice (PhD Biology 1974), whose research into the nutritional requirements for population health has focused on the effects of calcium and vitamin D, looking at nutrition in both affluent and resource-limited societies, is awarded the CBE for Services to British and Global Public Health Nutrition.

Alumnus Dr Andrew Mackintosh (PhD Physics 1978, and Darwin Research Fellow 1983-85), is the founder of the Royal Society Enterprise Fund, former CEO of Oxford Instruments, and current chair of Sphere Fluidics. He receives the CBE for Services to Science and Technology, and to Enterprise Development.
