Igor Rudan - Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh

[8 Mar 2016] Congratulations to Professor Igor Rudan, Joint Head of the Centre for Global Health Research, on becoming a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh.

Professor Rudan is one of seven members of University staff to have been made Fellows of the Royal Society of Edinburgh this year.  They join a prestigious Fellowship of around 1,600 individuals who have each demonstrated significant achievements in a broad range of fields.

As Scotland’s National Academy, the RSE’s strength lies in the breadth of disciplines represented by its Fellowship. This range of expertise enables the RSE to take part in a host of activities such as providing independent and expert advice to Government and Parliament, supporting aspiring entrepreneurs through mentorship, facilitating education programmes for young people and engaging the general public through educational events.

It is fantastic to welcome such a range of outstanding individuals to the Fellowship. Each newly elected Fellow has been nominated on their notable and extensive achievements. In joining the Fellowship, they will strengthen the RSE’s capacity to advance excellence across all areas of public life; both in Scotland and further afield.
