Dame Honor Bridget Fell (1900 – 1986) was a British scientist and zoologist. She was in every sense a pioneer, but especially in the field of tissue culture applied to embryogenesis. As Director of the Strangeways Research Laboratory in Cambridge, England at the age of 27, she at once became a leader in the cultivation of embryonic organs (limb buds, knee joints, mandibular skeletal tissue). Besides her work on bone rudiments, she made important contributions through her studies of skin and mucous membranes. Dame Honor was a leader in European as well as British cell and organ culture, and her influence was strong in North America.
The Honor B. Fell Fund Contribution supports the Honor B. Fell Award which was established in recognition of the achievements of the late Honor B. Fell.
