Awarded by Imperial College London for outstanding contribution to medicine
In recognition of his outstanding contribution to medicine, Professor Sir Nicholas Wright, who leads the Centre for Tumour Biology here at the BCI, has received an honorary Doctor of Science degree from Imperial College London.
With a distinguished career spanning over 50 years, Professor Wright’s research has provided profound insight into the early origins and evolution of several conditions, intricately highlighting the role of stem cells in both health and disease.
These insights promise to transform the development of future therapies for several gut and inflammation associated diseases, particularly cancer.
As one of the UK’s most distinguished physicians, Professor Wright was knighted in 2005 for his “services to medicine.”
