News from one of South York’s MBNAs

Roy Stewart MBNA has been invited to join the Royal Society of Biology as a Fellow.

The RSB is an organisation which represents a diverse membership of individuals, learned societies and other organisations. Their vision is for a world that understands the true value of biology and how it can improve life for all. Many of the members are practising scientists and professors in academia, and with Roy’s background as a retired senior lecturer in biomedical sciences – specialising in histopathology and cancer biology, this made him an excellent choice for fellowship.

Congratulations Roy, well done!
