Two Cardiff University academics elected Fellows of the Academy of Medical Sciences

January 17, 2016

Professor Craddock said: "It is very pleasing that the hard work of my research team has been recognized in this way. Election of psychiatrists as Fellows of the Academy of Medical Sciences is important because it helps to increase the profile of research into, and reduce stigma against, mental illness."

The Vice-Chancellor of Cardiff University, Dr David Grant, welcomed the double success, saying: "I would like to congratulate Professor Davies and Professor Craddock on this recognition of their achievements. Fellowships of the Academy are among the most prestigious honours in Medical Science. The fact that Cardiff has received two Fellowships this year, for academics who are both working on different aspects of neuroscience research, underlines the University's world-leading strength in this field."

The two professors will be formally admitted to the Academy at a ceremony on June 22.
