Professor Sir Alec Jeffreys' Awards on Display

Professor Sir Alec Jeffreys, who pioneered genetic fingerprinting, is perhaps the most celebrated academic figure at the University of Leicester.

A selection of the awards he has received has been put on display in the foyer of the Fielding Johnson building.  There are a total of thirteen trophies, medals and certificates including the very ornate Honorary Freedom of the City of Leicester and his honorary membership of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences.

Anyone who is interested is encouraged to come along and see the display.
