Eight professors from the University of Glasgow have been honoured in their year’s Royal Society of Edinburgh Fellowship Presentations. The Royal Society of Edinburgh is Scotland's national academy of science and letters. Fellowship of the RSE is awarded to an individual who is recognised within his or her peer group as having achieved excellence within their discipline or profession. Professor Anton Muscatelli, Principal of the University of Glasgow said: “The fact that we have had eight members of the University nominated for Fellowship is fantastic news for the University.
“The quality of our research and teaching depends on the quality of our staff and the recognition the Royal Society has given to my colleagues confirms that Glasgow has excellent people doing excellent things. They are vital to our ambition to be one of the very best Universities in the world and I would like to congratulate them on receiving this significant and well deserved honour."
