The review charts another remarkable year for the Society.  The past year brought to a successful conclusion our celebrations of the Society’s 350th anniversary. It has also presented several new opportunities for the Society to continue supporting and promoting excellence in science. The Review of the Year 2010-11 describes our work across our strategic priorities.
