The Society for Reproduction and Fertility has, over the years, honoured the contribution of its members to research in the fields of reproduction and fertility by conferring a variety of medals and awards.

SRF Prestigious awards

SRF Marshall Medal

The SRF presents the Marshall Medal, its premier award, to outstanding contributors to the study of fertility and reproduction.

SRF Distinguished Scientist (Anne McLaren) Award

The Society acknowledges the work of premier scientists that have made major scientific contributions to the field of reproductive biology through the SRF Distinguished Scientist Award. From 2018 recipients will present their lecture as part of the Fertility programme.

Remembering Roger Short

The Society for Reproductive Biology (SRB, Australasia), the Society for Reproduction and Fertility (SRF, UK) and the Society for the Study of Reproduction (SSR, North America) are delighted to announce the RV Short Medal and Lecture as an exciting new initiative to recognize emerging early career researchers across the globe.

SRF Emerging Investigator (previously New Investigator) Award

Members displaying originality, independence, and conceptual breakthroughs, are eligible to be nominated for this award by colleagues.

The recipients of this award will present their lecture at the annual Fertility meeting (usually at the SRF Satellite Day) and at the annual SSR conference in the USA, with all travel, accommodation and conference registration paid for by both societies.

SRF Postdoctoral Prize

Upon submission of an abstract to the Fertility meeting, Postdocs, who are within five years of receiving their PhD, can opt to be considered for this prize.  Top scoring submissions will be selected to present at the meeting and the winner is invited to present their paper at the Society for Reproductive Biology (SRB) Annual Scientific Conference in Australia.

Another of our conference awards, the PhD Student Prize is awarded to a postgraduate student who delivers the best oral presentation in the ‘Student Prize Session’ at Fertility.

SRF Stewart Rhind Communication Award

The Stewart Rhind Communication Award has been updated to encourage Early Career scientists to help raise awareness in reproductive science-related topics. Entries are encouraged from all media communication platforms. This prize is also open to students who are non-SRF Members.
