A team of St George’s, University of London researchers has won an award from a prestigious international endocrinology journal for publishing one of the best papers of the year. The study could pave the way for better treatment of women whose fertility has been affected by polycystic ovary syndrome.
The researchers – Dr Suman Rice, Dr Laura Pellatt, Stacey Bryan, Professor Saffron Whitehead and Professor Helen Mason – won an International Award for Publishing Excellence from The Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism (JCEM). The award was given to each of the top 14 papers published in JCEM in 2011. Professor Mason collected the award on behalf of the team at The Endocrine Society’s annual awards dinner in Houston in June.
