Speaking to the Genetics Society, Professor Higgs said 'I am delighted to have been awarded this year’s Genetics Society Medal. Over the years we have learnt so much about gene regulation and the principles underpinning human genetic disease from studying the globin genes. Most importantly this work has been carried out by successive generations of the most talented students and post-docs that I have been so fortunate to mentor. This recognition is for all of them.
