2004 Sir Philip Cohen, Dundee University, UK

Philip Cohen was born in Edgeware, Middlesex on July 22, 1945. He obtained a BSc in Biochemistry with 1st Class Honours in 1966, and a PhD in Biochemistry in 1969 under the supervision of Michael Rosemeyer. From 1969-1971 he was a NATO Postdoctoral Fellow of the Science Research Council at the University of Washington, Seattle, USA with Edmond Fischer, the 1992 Nobel Laureate for Medicine. Philip Cohen was appointed to a Lectureship in Dundee in October 1971, being promoted to a readership in 1977 and to a Professorship in 1981. From 1975-78 he held a Special Research Fellowship from the Wellcome Trust and from 1979-1984 his salary was paid by the Medical Research Council. In 1984 he became one of the 18 Royal Society Research Professors, the position that he holds today. He is also Director of the Medical Research Council Protein Phosphorylation Unit and Director of the Wellcome Trust Building at the University of Dundee. During his 34 years in Dundee, The University of Dundee has become home to one of the UK’s most exciting biomedical clusters and has one of the largest life science and research communities outside of Oxford and Cambridge, with at least 25 biotech and life science companies deciding to locate in the city. Only last year, the world’s six largest pharmaceutical companies descended on Dundee to sign Professor Cohen and his colleagues up in a Ł15 million deal to research new drugs to fight cancer and other life threatening diseases. Pfizer recently described it as the company’s "most important academic collaboration worldwide".

Professor Philip Cohen received many awards. In 1977 Philip Cohen was awarded an Anniversary prize of the Federation of the European Biochemical Societies and in the same year received The Colworth Medal of the British Biochemical Society. He was elected a member of the European Molecular Biology Organisation in 1982, a Fellow of the Royal Society of London in 1984, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 1984, a member of Academia Europea in 1990 and a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 1996. He received the Swiss Louis Jeantet Prize for Medicine and gave the 1998 Croonian Lecture (the Royal Society of London's premier lecture in the Biological Sciences). In 1998 he was awarded a knighthood in the Queen's birthday honours list.

Professor Sir Philip Cohen has published over 400 peer reviewed research papers, and given over 200 lectures at National and International Scientific meetings. Sir Philip Cohen named as the world's second most highly cited scientist in the fields of biology and biochemistry over the ten years between 1992 and 2002.
