Reach Society wishes to congratulate Professor Sir Geoff Palmer, Emeritus Professor of Life Sciences, Heriot-Watt University, Scotland, for a lifetime of contribution to science and service to the British community. He is British of African Caribbean origin who has made history in becoming the first Black Professor in a Scottish university. In a distinguished academic career he discovered the Barley Abrasion Process. It was patented and used by the British Brewing Industry to great financial advantage. He was the fourth person to be awarded The Distinguished American Award, in 1998, for his research on cereals; in 2003 he received an OBE for scientific and charitable work; and in 2014 he was knighted.
