It is a great honour to join such a distinguished group of people from all walks of life. My scientific mentors Max Perutz and César Milstein were earlier Companions of Honour, so it is a great delight to me to be able to continue in this tradition - Dr Richard Henderson.
I am delighted that Darwin College Fellow Richard Henderson has been appointed a Companion of Honour - this and his Nobel Prize are richly deserved indeed. He follows exactly in the footsteps of the late César Milstein, Darwin College Fellow, Nobel Laureate and Companion of Honour. Richard's skill and his immense dedication benefit us all, bringing hope for much needed treatments for a wide range of diseases - Master, Professor Mary Fowler.
