The UCL honorary doctorate recipients are major actors in scientific adventure, the university’s 2016-17 academic year theme. UCL is honouring three individuals who, through their action and commitment, embody scientific adventure:
- Eric Lander (USA), mathematician, geneticist, molecular biologist, bioinformatics expert,
- Cindy Lee Van Dover (USA), biologist and oceanographer,,
- Sanjay Subrahmanyam (Inde), economic historian.
The Louvain Year of Scientific Adventure was an opportunity to promote research investment as a means of living real scientific adventures, exploring new worlds while being a source of inventions and innovations for our society.
The 2017 honorary doctors illustrate in an exceptional way this triple dimension.
