Jeremy Farrar, Wellcome’s Director, said: "It’s fantastic to see the achievements of such a large number of our community recognised by both the Academy of Medical Sciences and the Royal Society.

"I wish to send my congratulations to all those elected, who were chosen for their contributions to science and the benefits these bring to society. We have such a wealth of talent across our research community and are especially proud of those honoured today."
