Congratulations to Exeter Fellow Dame Carol Robinson, Royal Society Research Professor and Dr Lee’s Professor of Chemistry, on being awarded an honorary doctorate by the Weizmann Institute of Science.

Professor Robinson was the first female professor of chemistry at both the University of Cambridge and the University of Oxford. She pioneered the use of mass spectrometry for proteome analysis and her research has contributed to improving the understanding of membrane proteins, which play a part in many diseases and conditions, including cancer and schizophrenia.

Professor Robinson was presented with the doctorate in Exeter College hall by Emeritus Fellow in Biochemistry Professor Raymond Dwek.
