We congratulate Professor Brian Foster OBE FRS (Donald H. Perkins Professor of Experimental Physics and Professorial Fellow) on becoming Vice-President of the Royal Society.
Professor Foster is known for his work on high-energy particle physics and accelerator science. His research interests include the structure of the proton as revealed by deep inelastic scattering experiments, and the development of high-energy linear electron-positron colliders. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2008. He will hold the position of Vice-President for seven months.
