Congratulations to two Wolfson students, who graduated in June, and were among six students from Cambridge who were selected as ‘Highly Commended’ in the Undergraduate Awards 2013 (UA). There were 43 winners in total.
UA recognises these students as being within the top 10% of their fields, in competition with students from across the globe including Harvard, Princeton, Oxford, Caltech, St Andrews, and Trinity College Dublin.
Banker, Traitor, Scapegoat, Spy? The Troublesome Case of Sir Edgar Speyer, the new book by Antony Lentin, Senior Member, was published in March.
Congratulations to Vassilis Koronakis, Professor of Molecular Biology in the Department of Pathology's Molecular, Cellular and Structural Microbiology group, who has won a Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator Award.

On completing his term of office as Gresham Professor of Rhetoric at Gresham College, London, which was extended to a fourth year, Professor Sir Richard Evans has been appointed a Gresham Fellow for three years, a position offered to some, but not all, Emeritus Gresham Professors.
We are delighted to welcome our first CAPREx visitor, Dr David Dodoo-Arhin, who will be a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Cambridge Graphene Centre. He is working in the Nanomaterials and Spectroscopy Group in the Electrical Engineering Division.
Congratulations to the President’s XI cricket team who in the space of a fortnight not only won their annual match against a Wolfson Students’ XI (for the third year running) but also went on to beat a Girton College XI. Both games were closely contested, but the willingness of certain key players in the President’s XI to sacrifice their wickets for the good of the team at critical moments in each innings proved to be decisive.
We are delighted to host an exhibition of prints depicting the fables in the Gallery, which will run until 30 September 2013. The exhibition is open to members of the public Monday to Friday, 10am to 12 noon and from 2.30 to 4.30pm: please go to the Porters' Lodge for directions.
