As announced today, Nobel laureate Sir Paul Nurse will be the first Director and Chief Executive of the UK Centre for Medical Research and Innovation (UKCMRI), which has been founded by the Medical Research Council, Cancer Research UK, the Wellcome Trust and University College London.
Wellcome Images has just acquired a series of portraits of Sir Paul, who will also take up the Presidency of the Royal Society later this year. These portraits were taken by Wellcome Image Award-winning photographer Anne-Katrin Purkiss, who has photographed many eminent scientists who also appear in our collections.
