Sir Colin Blakemore, FRS, FMedSci, HonFRCP, HonFRSM, FRSB, FBPhS was a British neurobiologist who studied vision and brain development.
He was the Yeung Kin Man Professor of Neuroscience at the City University of Hong Kong, as well as a Senior Fellow of the Hong Kong Institute for Advanced Study.
He was a Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Institute of Philosophy, School of Advanced Study, University of London, and an Emeritus Professor of Neuroscience at the University of Oxford, as well as a former Chief Executive of the British Medical Research Council (MRC).
He was best known to the general public as a science communicator, but he was also the target of a long-running animal rights movement. He was both “one of the most powerful scientists in the UK” and “a hate figure for the animal rights movement,” according to The Observer.
Blakemore married Andrée Elizabeth Washbourne, whom he met when both were 15 years old.
They have three children.
