We’re absolutely delighted to report that BTRU Theme Lead Professor Menna Clatworthy has recently been elected as a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences. Professor Clatworthy, who divides her time between research, teaching and clinical practice in transplantation and nephrology, leads the Biomarkers and Genomics theme of the BTRU and is among 50 leading UK researchers to join the prestigious Fellowship this year. Fellows are selected in recognition of their outstanding contributions to advancing biomedical science via world-leading research discoveries, running national science communication and engagement programmes and translating scientific advances into benefits for patients and the public. Like many biomedical researchers, Professor Clatworthy has currently redirected her research efforts to tackle the effects of the global coronavirus health crisis. She joins a number of other University of Cambridge researchers elected to the Fellowship in 2020, as reported on the University’s website.
