Professor Sir Stephen O’Rahilly is one of eighteen new Members recently elected to the Royal Irish Academy.
The Royal Irish Academy, Ireland’s leading body of experts in the sciences and humanities, admitted the new Members on Friday 26th May 2017. Since 1785 membership of the Academy has been awarded to persons who have attained distinction by their unique contributions to education and research.
