I am honoured to be elected a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences. The Academy has played a key role in promoting academic training and in the translation of research into clinical practice. These are my priorities also. I was reminiscing this week about my first opportunity in research as an undergraduate student in clinical pharmacology, which does not seem so long ago! I have benefited from fantastic mentoring from colleagues across the Centre since and would encourage other trainees and fellows to join the Academy’s mentoring programme.
