A world-leading fertility expert from the University of Sheffield has been made a Fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in recognition of his pioneering research into male fertility over the past 20 years.

Dr Allan Pacey, from the University’s Department of Human Metabolism, was also praised for his contribution to the public understanding of reproductive medicine, which has helped him become an internationally-renowned fertility expert.

Allan, who recently hosted an event with Dr Dawn Harper presenter of the Channel Four series Embarrassing Bodies, is also well known for his work on various film and television programmes.

Dr Pacey joined the University of Sheffield in 1992 as a postdoctoral scientist and is now academic lead for the Unit of Reproductive and Developmental Medicine, based in the Jessop Wing.

Dr David Richmond, President of the RCOG said: “We are delighted to make this award to Dr Pacey in recognition of his contribution to the science of Reproductive Medicine.

“He joins a roll call of other distinguished scientists from around the world.”
