  • On the occasion of the Queen's Birthday Honours on 9 June 2018, Dr Richard Henderson, Emeritus Fellow of Darwin College was appointed a Companion of Honour. This award is  granted for “major contribution to the arts, science, medicine, or government lasting over a long period of time” and the number of members is restricted to 65. In the 1990s Richard developed the second ever atomic model of a membrane protein and the techniques he developed for the electron crystallography are still in use. Over the next two decades his work revolutionised the techniques of Cryo-EM, allowing a quantum leap in imaging techniques and allowing atomic structure determinations of many proteins that were previously impossible to obtain, providing important insights into biological functions and mechanisms that will enhance the study of diseases such as neurodegenerative infectious diseases and cancer.
