Royal Society Royal Medal for Professor David Klenerman

Many congratulations to Professor David Klenerman on being awarded a Royal Medal by the Royal Society.  David has been awarded the medal jointly with Professor Sir Shankar Balasubramanian for their co-development of DNA sequencing techniques transforming biology and genomic medicine.

The Royal Medals were founded by HM King George IV in 1825. Between 1826 and 1964 two medals were awarded each year. In 1965 the third medal, covering the applied sciences, was introduced on behalf of HM The Queen.
