Professor Cathy Price elected to the Fellowship of the British Academy

Director of the Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging, Professor Cathy Price has been elected to the Fellowship of the British Academy. Cathy is one of only 52 UK fellows elected this year who have been recognised for their contributions to humanities and social sciences.

Founded in 1902, the British Academy is the UK’s national academy for the humanities and social sciences. Its Fellowship recognises the leading minds in these subjects from the UK and overseas.

The Academy is also a funding body for research, nationally and internationally, and a forum for debate and engagement.

Cathy will join over 1600 others in their unique and distinguished position as fellows.

The British Academy recognised 7 UCL academics this year.

Welcoming the Fellows, the new President of the British Academy, Professor Julia Black, said:

“I am delighted to welcome these distinguished and pioneering scholars to our Fellowship. I am equally delighted that we have so many new female Fellows. While I hope this means that the tide is finally turning for women in academia, there is still much to do to make the research world diverse and open to all.”

“With our new Fellows’ expertise and insights, the Academy is better placed than ever to open new seams of knowledge and understanding and to enhance the wellbeing and prosperity of societies around the world. I congratulate each of our new Fellows on their achievement and look forward to working with them.”

Election as a fellow is considered to be an excellent achievement, the process renowned for its rigor and selectivity.

Congratulations to Cathy!
