The Oxford University Medical School is pleased to announce that the Osler Memorial Medal for 2010 has been awarded to Professor David A. Warrell, DM, DSc, FRCP, FRCPE, FMedSci, Honorary Fellow of St Cross College.

David WarrellThe Osler Memorial Medal (named after the distinguished physician, Sir William Osler, Regius Professor of Medicine at Oxford 1905-1919) is awarded once every five years to the Oxford medical graduate who, in the opinion of the Board of Awarders, has made ‘the most valuable contribution to the science, art or literature of
medicine’, and who has not previously received the medal.

Professor Warrell has made pioneering contributions in setting up Oxford's clinical tropical medicine research effort in Thailand, which led directly to the establishment of equally successful bases in Vietnam
and Kenya. Professor Warrell has also made valuable contributions, amongst other things, in the field of the treatment of malaria and snake bite and undertook a central role in the Oxford Textbook of Medicine.
The Board of Awarders unanimously nominated Professor Warrell for the 2010 medal and felt him very worthy of this recognition by the Oxford Medical School and the wider University. The medal will be presented by
the Vice-Chancellor at the degree ceremony to be held on Saturday 27 November 2010.
