Leading animal scientist wins prestigious Marshall medal
Date:8/2/2011

A leading University of Nottingham animal scientist has been awarded one of the most prestigious medals in the field of animal reproductive biology.

Professor Bob Webb has been chosen to receive the 'Marshall Medal' which is the premier award made by the Council of the Society for Reproduction and Fertility (SRF http://www.srf-reproduction.org/honours/marshall.htm). The Society aims to enhance the knowledge of reproductive processes and fertility in man and animals on an international scale and publishes the world-renowned journal, Reproduction.

Professor Webb was awarded the Medal at the Society's recent annual conference in recognition of his long and distinguished contributions to the field of reproductive biology. He is The University of Nottingham's Pro-Vice Chancellor for Research and Professor of Animal Science in the School of Biosciences.

The Marshall was established in 1963 to commemorate the life and work of distinguished animal biologist, F.H.A Marshall. It is awarded 'from time to time' by the Society to 'outstanding contributors to the study of fertility and reproduction'.

Reacting to his Marshall Medal, Professor Webb said:" To be honoured by one's peers is one of the greatest accolades that one can receive. Furthermore, when one looks at the names of previous recipients of the Marshall Medal, who are scientists who have had a major impact on our understanding of the control of reproductive function, then I feel doubly proud. Moreover in receiving this honour I fully acknowledge the significant contribution made to my research by the many research students, support staff and collaborators. I have been fortunate to have worked with so many dedicated and intellectually stimulating scientists from around the world. "

Professor Webb started his career by working on dairy, arable and pig farms. He graduated from the University of Nottingha
