We need your help to nominate Professor Daphne Jackson to feature on the new £50 note for the Bank of England’s Think science competition.

Professor Daphne Jackson (1936 –1991) was a nuclear physicist and a lifelong campaigner for women in STEM careers.

Professor Jackson was appointed Professor of Physics at the University of Surrey in 1971, the first female Professor of Physics in the UK. Later, she became Dean of the Faculty of Science at the University.

We were established in 1992 in her memory to continue her inspired work. Read Our history.
