Professor Harshad Kumar Dharamshi Bhadeshia FRS FREng (pictured centre) is the Tata Steel Professor of Metallurgy in the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy and Director of the SKF Steel Technology Centre. His work is focused on transformation theory, which is concerned with the arrangement of atoms in a solid, in order to enable the invention of new iron alloys. He has been appointed a Knight Bachelor for services to Science and Technology.

Professor Christopher Munro Clark (pictured right) is the Regius Professor of History. His research work is centred on the history of 19th-century Germany and continental Europe. He has published numerous studies and books relating to the political and cultural history of religion, Kaiser Willhelm II, and the history of Prussia. He has been appointed a Knight Bachelor for services to British German relations.

Archibald Hugh Duberly, CBE is the Lord-Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire and a Senior Member of Wolfson College. He has been appointed a KCVO.

Professor Christopher Aidan Gilligan (pictured left) is the Head of the Epidemiology and Modelling Group in the Department of Plant Sciences. His work is focused on developing and testing a theoretical framework to understand the mechanisms that control invasion, persistence, scaling and variability of epidemics within changing agricultural and natural landscapes. He is also a Trustee of the Natural History Museum, by Prime Ministerial appointment. He has been appointed CBE for services to plant health in the field of epidemiology.

Professor Elizabeth Anne Howlett Hall is Professor of Analytical Biotechnology and Head of the Cambridge Analytical Biotechnology Group in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology. Her research work is into heterogenous analytical systems with a primary focus on molecular sensors and directed towards environmental, medical and industrial application. She is also the Chair of Disability Snowsports UK. She has been appointed CBE for services to higher education and to sport.

Professor Anthony John Holland is Professor of the Psychiatry of Learning Disabilities and Head of the Cambridge Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Group in the Department of Psychiatry. His main areas of research include the relationship between genetic syndromes and associated psychiatric and behavioural disorders, and clinico-legal studies. He is also Chair in Learning Disabilities at the Health Foundation, Fellow and Vice-President of the International Association for the Scientific Study of Intellectual Disability, President of the UK Prader-Willi Association, and President of Cambridge MENCAP. He has been appointed CBE for services to psychiatry.

Professor James Anthony Jackson FRS is Professor of Active Tectonics and Head of the Department of Earth Sciences. His work exploits techniques in earthquake source seismology, geomorphology, space geodesy and remote sensing to examine how the continents are deforming today on all scales: from the details of the fault rupture in single earthquakes, to how that faulting has created the local geomorphology and structure, to how regional fault patterns and motions can accommodate deformation of vast continental areas. He is also part of the Dynamic Earth and Geohazards Group, and the lead Principal Investigator on the Earthquakes Without Frontiers Project – a joint NERC-ESRC consortium supporting a partnership of physical and social scientists working to help increase resilience to earthquakes in countries in Asia. He has been apointed CBE for services to environmental science.
