BSAS Conference. This year (20/21) the award is sponsored by the Knowledge Transfer Network.
Who was Kevin Shingfield?
A major part of Kevin’s work was training the next generation of students to work in our sector whether at science, industry, education or policy fronts. Kevin instilled the key principles of
conducting scientifically excellent research, which is relevant to big challenges in our society, to his many students. Through this award we aim to honour those principles and Kevin’s passion for animal science, his drive to improve the lives of animals. Kevin, who was Professor of Nutritional Physiology at Aberystwyth University, passed away suddenly at the age of 48 in September 2016.
