"The smallest showcase in our Meyvaert history (H 200 x W 200 x D 100) has been unveiled last month at the University of Oxford!"

Peter Medawar, born in 1915 in Brazil, was a British Biologist whose work on graft rejection and the discovery of an acquired immune tolerance was fundamental to the way that we understand science today.

Among his achievements Peter Medawar was awarded the Royal Medal by The Royal Society of London in 1959, The Nobel Prize in 1960, was knighted in 1965, and appointed to the Order of Merit in 1981.

In addition to the showcase, we also prepared an integrated graphic panel. This was a print on Plexiglas with a picture and biography of Peter Medawar. For the back frame of the glass hood, we used 3D printed components.
