Internationally recognised biomedical and medical scientist Sir Peter Gluckman has been appointed to the Order of New Zealand for services to his country. From the hormonal control of growth before and after birth and neurological diseases to evolutionary medicine and the interface between human and pastoral animal biology, Sir Peter's research has been extensive.

My Wife knows Sir Peter Gluckman .. very vaguely.. from years ago at University when she was doing a Psych Masters Thesis on Pigeon Brain function. I think she was even considering working for him?

He was already "Sir Peter' before today.. now he has the additional honour

Queen's Birthday Honours: Top honour for science success

Sir Peter Gluckman
Order of New Zealand for services to New Zealand

Sir Peter Gluckman has spent a lifetime in laboratories, poring over data, and lobbying tirelessly for scientific interests to anyone who will listen. But his biggest scientific breakthroughs took place over a pint of cold beer at the pub.

His work in pre- and post-natal nutrition, which has earned him an international reputation, grew out of "eureka" moments while sipping a drink.

"Maybe the answer to science is free beer," Sir Peter mused as those scientific achievements helped earn him this country's highest honour.

He has been made appointed to the Order of New Zealand, which is reserved for fewer than 20 living New Zealanders.

What a brilliant and dedicated physician. He said he would remain an active scientist until his "brain rots".
I enjoyed reading about him.
