The Master, Professor Chris Dobson, was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Science by King’s College London in a ceremony that took place on 14 November.

The citation states that 'he has demonstrated the power of chemistry to understand protein misfolding disorders including neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, and provided new insights into the evolutionary constraints upon the chemistry of life.'

Three other Honorary Degrees were conferred at the same time, to the Right Honourable the Lord Judge, Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales, Professor Tan Chorh Chuan, President of the National University of Singapore, and Bill Bryson, the UK’s highest selling author of non-fiction and previously Chancellor of Durham University.
