Professor Ottoline Leyser has been awarded the Genetics Society Medal for 2016. 

The award given annually by the Genetics society seeks to recognise outstanding research contributions to genetics.  

Professor Leyser is the second scientist whose research focusses on plants to be awarded the medal in recent years, following on from Caroline Dean in 2007.

Recipients are invited to deliver a lecture at a Genetics Society meeting, where the medal will be awarded.  The medal recipient is elected annually on the basis of nominations made by any individual member of the Genetics Society.
