Mark Maslin becomes Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award holder

Professor Mark Maslin is one of seven scientists to be awarded this year’s prestigious Wolfson Research Merit Awards. The Awards are jointly funded by the Wolfson Foundation and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, and aim to provide universities with up to 5 years’ additional funding to enable them to retain scientists of outstanding achievement and potential.

Mark continues his work on the causes of early evolution in Africa. Other award holders are working on a wide array of topics, including atmospheric aerosols; weather and climate; time and extra dimensions in space; and the impact of systemic infection and inflammation on the aged and diseased brain.
