Eureka 100

University President Professor Sir Martin Evans was named today (7 October) as one of the most important people in British science.

Sir Martin ranked at 30 in the list, published in the current edition of Eureka, The Times’ monthly science magazine. The Eureka 100 list celebrates the publication’s first anniversary and is a guide to the most influential contemporary scientific figures in Britain.

The list was compiled by a specialist panel, including academics and science journalists.

This latest honour for Sir Martin comes shortly after his identification of embryonic stem cells was listed in a poll of the most important scientific discoveries made at UK universities.

Sir Martin was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2007 for his work in the field of embryonic stem cells and DNA recombination for mammals.
