Head of School made Fellow of Royal Society of Edinburgh
Head of The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, Professor David Argyle, has been made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
Professor Argyle joins a prestigious Fellowship of around 1,600 individuals who have each demonstrated significant achievements in a broad range of fields. Membership of the Society hails from sectors ranging from the arts, business, science and technology and academia.
I am delighted to join the Royal Society of Edinburgh. It is an honour to be awarded this Fellowship alongside so many eminent colleagues drawn from such a broad range of sectors. I very much look forward to playing my part in supporting the Royal Society in the advancement of learning and developing the careers of young people.
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.
