IT IS RARE that you hold an 80-year old as a role model to students in their 20s, but we are pleased to do so on the occasion of Professor Sir David Hopwood’s 80th birthday. David is 80 this month after a remarkable career as a scientist, mentor and collaborator. He also served as President of the SGM, from 2000 to 2003.
