Professor Sydney Brenner, Nobel Laureate and Honorary Fellow of Exeter College has had his portrait unveiled at Exeter College. Professor Brenner is currently attached to the Glycobiology Institute in the Biochemistry department where he has a postdoctoral researcher working for him.

Professor Brenner made several seminal contributions to the field of molecular biology in the 1960s including proposing the concept of a messenger RNA. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2002 with John Sulston and H. Robert Horvitz for work on the nematode worm.

The portrait was unveiled in the presence of many dignitaries including The Rector Frances Cairncross, Professor Raymond Dwek, Sir James Gowans and Sir Roger Bannister.
