An 80-year-old renowned Oxford academic has died after being trampled by a herd of cows in Sussex.
Professor Brian Bellhouse was walking alone in a field at Church Lane in Guestling. Paramedics administered CPR but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
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.
