~1 min read

MGU Director wins Genetics Society Medal Professor Steve Brown, Director of the Mammalian Genetics Unit at MRC Harwell, has been awarded the 2009 Genetics Society Medal for his outstanding research contribution in genetics. Steve, who is internationally recognised for his seminal contributions to mouse and mammalian genetics, played a leading role in the development of high-resolution genetic and physical maps of the mouse genome. Most notably, he was involved in initiating the large-scale mouse ENU mutagenesis programme at Harwell for the generation of new disease models. His own research interests have focused on mouse deafness models, where he has made a number of pivotal contributions to our understanding of the genetic bases of hearing loss. Steve said of his award: “There has been enormous progress in mouse genetics over the last decade and Harwell has been at the forefront of these developments. It is a tremendous pleasure to receive this recognition.”
