Two York scientists made royal fellows

Two member of the University of York Chemistry department have been elected fellows of the Royal Society, one of the top honours for science in the world.

Professor Robin Perutz, who specialises in organametallics, and Gideon Davies, whose research focuses on structural enzymology, were two of only 44 to be awarded this high accolade.

It is very unusual for two academics from the same department to be recognised as fellows in the same year, with Vice-Chancellor Brian Cantor stating it as a “resounding endorsement of the strong scientific research at York”.
