The College is very sad to announce that Professor Brian Bellhouse has passed away at the age of 80.

Brian Bellhouse came up to Magdalen in 1957 to read for a degree in Mathematics. He obtained his DPhil in Engineering Science in 1964 and was then made a Fellow by Examination. He was elected an Official Fellow in Engineering Science in 1966. On his retirement in 2004 he was elected an Emeritus Fellow.

Brian co-founded the company PowderJect in 1993 which became one of the first companies to be spun-out successfully from the University of Oxford and was based at our Oxford Science Park. Brian was a major donor to the College and endowed the Oxford-Bellhouse Graduate Scholarship at Magdalen in Biomedical Engineering.
