FREng

Professor Nigel Slater has been elected as a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering (FREng) - July, 2004.

Election to The Academy is by invitation only and less than 60 Fellows are elected each year from nominations made by existing Fellows. In this way, the Academy honours the UK's most distinguished engineers.

Professor Slater is head of the Bioscience Engineering Research Group at the Department of Chemical Engineering, he is one of the founders of biotechnology company Vivamer and he is also one of the team which has developed a cholesterol reducing cheese that has just won a SIAL d'Or Country prize.

Other members of the Department who are also Fellows of the Royal Academy of Engineering are Professors John Bridgwater, John Davidson, Lynn Gladden and Malcolm Mackley. The current President of The Royal Academy of Engineering is Lord Broers DL FREng FRS, who was until recently Vice Chancellor of the University of Cambridge.
