Former Professor of Biochemistry receives an Honorary Fellowship.

Muhammad Akhtar, an Emeritus Professor of the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Southampton, Fellow of the Royal Society and Director General of the School of Biological Sciences at the University of the Punjab in Pakistan has been invited to join the Fellowship of University College London.

This Honorary Fellowship is granted on the grounds of Professor Akhtar’s distinguished scientific career and close ties with UCL. Professor Akhtar will be formally admitted to the UCL Fellowship at a ceremony in June this year. This latest honour adds to other top distinctions achieved during his career since he was appointed as a Professor of Biochemistry at Southampton in 1973. These include the Sitara-e-Imtiaz from the Pakistan government, the Flintoff Medal from the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Medal of the Third World Academy of Sciences, of which he is one of the Founding Fellows.
