Honorary MD for Professor Tansey

Professor Tilli Tansey recently received an honorary MD from the Faculty of Medicine, University of Sheffield, "awarded in recognition of her outstanding achievements and distinguished career in the field of medical history". Both the valediction from the Public Orator and Professor Tansey's reply emphasised the importance of the Wellcome Trust in encouraging her to transfer from the neuroscience research laboratory to medical history.

Past and current members of the History of Modern Biomedicine Group later celebrated the event with a lunch at the Royal Society of Medicine.
