Roger Sturmey

Professor of Reproductive Medicine, University of Hull

Jointly appointed Professor of Reproductive Medicine at the Hull York Medical School and Senior Research Fellow at The University of Manchester, with research interests in energy metabolism and very early embryo development. I focus on understanding how metabolic events around the time of conception can affect development and lifelong health of the offspring, in humans and animals. Particularly interested in in vitro fertilisation and associated procedures and how this differs from natural conception - and fascinated by the oft-neglected Fallopian tube. Personal interests in national and global politics, particularly how this affects research and higher education. Passionate about equality of opportunity in science and education for all.
