Double success for Rob Klose
Following on from his recent Royal Society award, Rob Klose has received two further honours in recognition of his work.
Dr Rob Klose
As part of the recent University-wide recognition of distinction process, he has been made a Full Professor, and now becomes Professor of Cell and Molecular Biology.
Rob was also awarded the Monsanto Senior Research Fellowship at Exeter College. This is one of the most senior college research fellowships in Oxford and is highly competitive.
The Fellowship, endowed by the Monsanto Company, was part of a grant awarded in 1985 to Professor Raymond Dwek in the department - the first industrial grant to Oxford in its 900-year history. The non-stipendiary Fellowship is intended to support an individual carrying out outstanding research in Oxford in molecular/cellular biology, biochemistry, or physiology.
Professor Jane Mellor was the first recipient in 1986 and became the first woman fellow on the Governing Body of Exeter College.
For Rob, who joined the department as a Wellcome Trust Career Development Fellow and is now a Wellcome Trust Senior Research Fellow, the Monsanto Fellowship is his first college appointment.
