Professor Sarah Tabrizi (Department of Neurodegenerative Diseases, UCL Institute of Neurology and Honorary Consultant Neurologist at the National Hospital of Neurology and Neurosurgery) and Professor Cathy Price (Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, UCL Institute of Neurology) have been recognised for their contribution to the advancement of medical science by election to the Fellowship of the Academy of Medical Sciences.

Academy Fellows are elected for excellence in medical research, for innovative application of scientific knowledge or for their conspicuous service to healthcare.

Professor Sarah Tabrizi is one of three former Academy mentees who have later been elected Fellows. Professor Tabrizi has worked closely with the Academy for many years, joining the mentoring scheme in 2002, and being an active member of our Academic Careers Committee. 


My mentor and the Academy’s Careers team have had an influential role in several career decisions, and this support has been invaluable over the last ten years. It is very exciting to be joining the Fellowship, and I look forward to maintaining a close relationship with the Academy in my new role.

The new Fellows will be formally admitted to the Academy at a ceremony on Wednesday 2 July 2014.
