Nobel Laureate Sir Peter Mansfield has Nottingham tram named after him
From Elizabeth Cass
Nottingham City Council have honoured Sir Peter Mansfield by naming one of their trams after him. Sir Peter, who won the Nobel Prize for his role in inventing the MRI scanner, said he was honoured and proud for such recognition on his own doorstep. Nottingham's extended tram system now serves The University of Nottingham where Sir Peter carried out his pioneering work. It also stops at the Queen's Medical Centre where thousands of patients benefit from his research everyday.
