Every year the British Society for Developmental Biology (BSDB) awards the Waddington Medal, its highest accolade, at the society’s Spring meeting. This year the Waddington Medal was awarded to Prof Phil Ingham, a geneticist and developmental biologist well known for his contributions to the field: from his PhD work on Drosophila‘s trithorax, to the identification of the vertebrate hedgehog genes. Phil gave a fascinating talk at the meeting, not only providing an overview of his career but also interesting insights into the Drosophila and zebrafish fields.
We were involved in recording this lecture, which is now available in full at The Company of Biologists YouTube channel and below. You can also find out more about Phil by reading our interview with him, which was posted here on the Node (and in Development) last month.
