Professor Terence Lewis received his MBE for services to marine science and promoting scientific collaboration in the South West. He served as a trustee of Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) for a total of 14 years and was chair from 2009 to 2015. He took a prominent role in the development of PML when it was privatised from NERC in 2002. Whilst building on its reputation as a marine research organisation, Professor Lewis was also dedicated to making PML a success from its fledgling beginnings as a private company with charitable status. These, and subsequent efforts, were all undertaken in his own time and on a voluntary basis.
