Cheney Fellows

We are delighted to welcome the following scientists to the Astbury Centre which has been made possible thanks to generous funding to the University of Leeds by Peter and Sue Cheney. Further details about the Cheney Fellowships can be found here.

"As is so true for many of us Alumni, Leeds has played an important role in our lives. My wife Sue and I endowed the Cheney Fellowships with the objective of enhancing the national and international reputation of the University of Leeds by bringing to Leeds, eminent academics to study and interact with students, faculty and staff. We are delighted that this year the Astbury Centre has attracted three Fellows, each with outstanding academic credentials, to come to Leeds, where for varying periods of time, they have the freedom and time to study in areas of personal interest, interact with students, staff and enjoy the great hospitality for which Yorkshire is famous. In doing so they will follow in the footsteps of previous Cheney Fellows each of whom found their experience most rewarding and have gone on to establish long term relationships between Leeds and their home institution"
