Professor Raymond Dwek honoured by Romanian Academy of Science
Professor Raymond Dwek, Emeritus Fellow of Exeter, will receive the Honoris causa award from the Romanian Academy of Science on 23rd March 2010. This award is reserved for Academy Presidents and other outstanding cultural and scientific personalities.
The distinction recognises Professor Dwek’s contribution to the development of Romanian science in the field of Biochemistry and Glycobiology. Throughout the political transition in Romania there was collaboration between the Institute of Biochemistry, Bucharest and the Oxford Glycobiology Institute, so that many of the Romanian students were trained at Oxford. On their return to Romania, these highly qualified scientists have provided expertise which has improved the level of science in Romania.
