Many congratulations to Dr Mark Hill, who has become a Fellow of the Society for Radiological Protection (FSRP).

Dr Mark Hill was awarded the honour of Fellow of the Society for Radiological Protection (FSRP) in recognition of his significant impact within the field of radiation protection.

Mark has over 30 years of experience in the field of radiation biology and physics. The main focus of his work relates to understanding the mechanisms behind how the spatial and temporal pattern of energy deposition by ionising radiation drives the subsequent biological response and ultimately the associated human health implications.

Alongside his research, Mark has been involved with a number of national and international committees, is Course Director of our MSc in Radiation Biology, lectures on the Annual Radiological Protection Summer School at University of Cambridge, and is a specialist radiobiology examiner on the First FRCR examination board for the Royal College of Radiologists. This year is also due to become a Member of the Committee on Medical Aspects of Radiation in the Environment (COMARE), which provides independent advice to all UK government departments and agencies.

Speaking of the award, Mark said “It is an honour to receive recognition from my peers for all the work I have done over the years”.
