Trinity Monday 2016- Fellows and Scholars
Trinity College Dublin was founded as a corporation consisting of the Provost, the Fellows and the Scholars. Scholars are elected annually in various subjects on the result of an examination held in Trinity term. Scholarship or research achievement of a high order is the primary qualification for Fellowship, coupled with evidence of the candidate's contribution to the academic life of the College and an effective record in teaching.
Traditionally, the election of new Fellows and Scholars is announced by the Provost on Trinity Monday (11 April 2016) at 10.00 a.m. from the steps of the Public Theatre. Two Honorary Fellows, Ten Professorial Fellows, Fourteen New Fellows and Fifty New Scholars were elected this morning.
IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PROVISION IN SECTION 11 OF THE CHAPTER ON THE FELLOWS IN THE 2010 CONSOLIDATED STATUTES, THE FOLLOWING HAVE BEEN ELECTED TO HONORARY FELLOWSHIP:
William C. Campbell (Professor)
Born in Co. Donegal, William C. Campbell graduated from Trinity in 1952 with first class honours in Zoology.
Professor Campbell, with Satoshi Ōmura, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2015 "for their discoveries concerning a novel therapy against infections caused by roundworm parasites". A number of serious infectious diseases are caused by parasites spread by insects. River blindness is caused by a tiny worm that can infect the cornea and cause blindness. Lymphatic filariasis, or elephantiasis, is also caused by a worm and produces chronic swelling. Satoshi Ōmura cultured bacteria, which produce substances that inhibit the growth of other microorganisms. In 1978 he succeeded in culturing a strain from which William Campbell purified a substance, avermectin, which in a chemically modified form, ivermectin, proved effective against river blindness and elephantiasis.
As Director of Parasitology at Merck, in 1987, Professor Campbell spearheaded the decision by Merck to distribute Ivermectin free to millions of people in what became one of the first and foremost examples of a public/private partnership in international health. Annually 25 million people are treated under this scheme preventing new cases of river blindness. He was elected to the US National Academy of Science in 2002 and was awarded the American Society of Parasitology Distinguished Service Award in 2008.

She also served as Executive Dean of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard 2001-2008 where she was instrumental in its transformation into an interdisciplinary centre promoting scholarship across academic fields and the creative arts.
Professor Richardson's research specialises in international security with an emphasis on terrorist movements. Her work has won numerous awards including the Sumner Prize for work towards the prevention of war and the establishment of universal peace. She has written widely on international terrorism, British foreign and defence policy, security institutions, and international relations. Her publications include Democracy and Counterterrorism: Lessons from the Past (2007), What Terrorists Want: Understanding the Enemy, Containing the Threat (2006), The Roots of Terrorism (2006), and When Allies Differ (1996).

His research focusses on the politics of the European Court of Justice. His recent book, In Place of Inter-State Retaliation, which appeared with Oxford in 2015, argues that the special role of individuals – citizens and businesses – in the enforcement of EU law must be understood as a contribution to inter-state politics, because it allows the EU member states to give up enforcement through retaliatory trade sanctions or similarly disruptive countermeasures.
At Trinity, Dr Phelan regularly teaches the large undergraduate module on International Relations and enjoys the 'first contact' of many of these students with the study of international politics. He also established and directed Trinity's successful M.Sc. in International Politics from 2011 to 2014, which offers students an intensive research-led education on a variety of topics in contemporary world politics.
