Prestigious honour for cell biologist at Warwick Medical School
Professor Stephen Royle of Warwick Medical School at the University of Warwick has been announced as the recipient of the 2021 Hooke Medal for Cell Biology by the British Society for Cell Biology. The medal is presented annually at the BSCB meeting after which the winner delivers their research talk.
The Hooke Medal is awarded every year by the BSCB and recognises an emerging leader in cell biology. The award is named after Robert Hooke, the eminent 17th-century natural philosopher and author of Micrographia (the world’s first comprehensive illustrated book on microscopy) and is given to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to UK Cell Biology.
Professor Stephen Royle is a cell biologist at the Centre for Mechanochemical Cell Biology at Warwick Medical School. His research group works on membrane trafficking and on mitosis in human cells with recent discoveries from the Royle Lab including engineering a way to make cells take up nutrients on-demand, making a new system for correlating microscopic images, and identifying a new class of transport vesicle in cells.
