SRF Student Prize

The Society offers an award for its postgraduate student members. The prize is awarded to the best presentation during the SRF Student Prize Session at Fertility (2018 onwards).

The 2018 SRF Student Prize was awarded to PhD student Teresa Vilanova, Nuffield Department of Women’s and Reproductive Health, for her presentation:

“Exsomes for mammalian sperm cells: Assessing the impact of this novel delivery tool for future clinical applications”


To be considered for the award, student members must submit an abstract to be presented at Fertility.

All presenting authors must be enrolled for a Postgraduate degree (MSc, MPhil, MRes or PhD).

Submitted abstracts are reviewed by an independent panel and will be short listed for oral presentation at the SRF Student Prize Session at the meeting. The prize is awarded based on a combination of criteria which include content, presentation, delivery and discussion of the work.

To be considered for the SRF Student Prize, qualifying student members tick the relevant box when submitting their abstract for Fertility.
