New Year Honour for Prof Sir Keith Peters

Honorary Fellow Professor Sir Keith Peters

Honorary Fellow Professor Sir Keith Peters has been given an even higher honour in the New Year Honours list by being awarded a GBE (Knights Grand Cross of the British Empire) for Services to the Advancement of Medical Science.

Sir Keith, who was previously Knighted in 1993, graduated in Medicine from the Welsh National School of Medicine in 1961, later becoming Regius Professor of Physic at the University of Cambridge and head of the School of Clinical Medicine in the late 80s. His research interests focus on the immunology of renal and vascular disease, and in particular on how delineation of immunological mechanisms can lead to new therapies for these disorders. Sir Keith was elected an Honorary Fellow of Christ’s in 2005 and the College is enormously proud of his achievements.
