In the Oscars of British science 44 eminent scholars have been elected as new fellows of the Royal Society.
As the UK's national academy of science, the Royal Society honours leaders in the fields of science, engineering and medicine to join the likes of David Attenborough and Stephen Hawking.
This year's new fellows include Rosemary Grant, of Princeton University, honoured for her work in helping to make the Darwin's finch project among the most significant field studies of evolution of all time. Dr Grant demonstrated that natural selection occurs frequently in nature and that evolution can be extremely rapid as a result.
Also elected is Prof Andre Geim, whose work on graphene has made a significant contribution to moving forward the commercial applications of nanotechnology. This could lead to computer chips made from a single molecule that are able to operate at ultra fast speeds.
