Professor Paresh Vyas is one of eight Oxford researchers that have been elected to the Academy of Medical Sciences Fellowship.
The new Fellows have been elected to the Academy in recognition of their exceptional contributions to the advancement of biomedical and health science, cutting edge research discoveries, and translating developments into benefits for patients and wider society.
Professor Vyas is a Professor of Haematology and a Consultant Physician, whose research involves improving understanding of the fundamental biological processes underlying normal and malignant haematopoiesis and translate this to improve patient outcomes through new rational therapies.
Professor Vyas said "I am delighted and honoured to be elected a Fellow of the Academy of Sciences that does so much good work for medicine and science. I have had the privilege of working with immensely talented and wonderful colleagues in the MRC WIMM, in Oxford and elsewhere; and this recognition would not have been possible without them. I also want to acknowledge the vibrant and rewarding environment of the MRC WIMM and Oxford, which makes all of this possible."
Many congratulations to Professor Vyas!
