Department of Zoology


The Department is delighted to offer its congratulations to Professor Ron Laskey, FRS, on his award of the Royal Society's prestigious Royal Medal.

This means that there are now five holders of the Medal who have been honoured for their work whilst a member of this Department: Gabriel Horn (2001), Robert Hinde (1996), Michael Berridge (1991), John Gurdon (1985) and Ron Laskey.

The Royal Society, the UK’s independent academy for science, makes these awards to scientists in recognition of their achievements in a wide variety of fields of research - the uniting factor is the excellence of their work and the profound implications their findings have had for others working in their relevant fields.
