Admin History Dr James F. Riley was born in Settle, Yorkshire, in 1912. He studied medicine at Edinburgh University, where he graduated with Honours in 1935, obtaining his F.R.C.S.E. in 1938. From 1939 to 1944 he was an assistant surgeon in the Scottish Emergency Medical Service, and later served as a surgical specialist commanding a mobile surgical unit in the Far East. On returning, he wrote his M.D. thesis "Experiments in Carcinogenesis 1939-1944". In 1948 he obtained the Diploma in Medical Radiotherapy and was appointed as Consultant Radiotherapist at Dundee Royal Infirmary, and in 1950 became a reader in the Department of Radiotherapy, until 1975. From 1975-1977 Riley was a research fellow at The University of Dundee. Dr Riley's research was devoted to the study of the Mast Cell, discovering the origin of histamine, work that has stimulated further research world-wide. Recognising his international significance, Dr Riley was appointed as a visiting Professor at the University of Montreal where he was awarded the Claude Bernard Medal, as well as being elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. Dr Riley died in 1985.
