Two University of Missouri faculty were among 15 individuals recently named Society for the Study of Reproduction (SSR) Distinguished Fellows. R. Michael Roberts, Chancellor’s Professor with appointments in animal sciences and biochemistry, and Thomas Spencer, Curators’ Distinguished Professor of Animal Sciences and interim vice chancellor for research and economic development, were both honored. This is the inaugural year of the program.
The fellowship is one of the highest professional scientific honors awarded for outstanding contributions to the scientific discipline of reproductive biology. It recognizes the impact of active SSR members and their outstanding contributions to the field of reproductive biology and to SSR. Fewer than 2% of the entire SSR membership have earned the distinction of Distinguished Fellow.
