Bristol scientists make The Times' Top 100
7 October 2010
Two scientists from the University of Bristol have been named among the 100 most important people in British science and engineering in a list published today. The list was compiled for the first anniversary edition of The Times’ science magazine, Eureka.
Anthony Hollander, ARC Professor of Rheumatology and Tissue Engineering in the School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, appeared at number 39 for his pioneering work on stem cells which enabled the first tissue-engineered trachea, utilising the patient’s own stem cells, to be successfully transplanted into a young woman with a failing airway.
A short film of Professor Sparks discussing his work can be viewed in the Faculty of Science Video gallery.
