About

The Brian Setchell Medal

The Brian Setchell Medal was introduced in 2007 to commemorate 30 years of the British Andrology Society being a learned society. Brian Setchell was a founding member of the BAS with a long illustrious career in the field of andrology.

 

Professor Brian Setchell has a long-standing interest in the physiology, biochemistry and endocrinology of the testes and epididymis with particular reference to the blood-tests barrier, testicular fluids and blood flow, the descent of the testis, cryptorchidism and the effects of motility, fertilising ability, and the development of embryos in normal females made pregnant by males whose testes had been heated.

Until the end of 1996, he was Professor of Animal Sciences in the Faculty of Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences at the Waite Campus and spent 1997-8 as a Nobel Foundation Fellow and 2000 as a STINT fellow at the Pediatric Endocrinology Unit, Karolinska Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden. He has published a book “The Mammalian Testis”, and 69 major reviews and chapters in books, 136 original research articles, and 203 abstracts on the work of his group on the testis and epididymis, as well as translations of de Graaf’s two books on Male and Female Reproductive Organs (originally published in 1668 and 1672 respectively) as well as of Sertoli’s original 1865 article describing the cells in the testes named after him. He was given the Distinguished Andrologist award for 1997 by the American Society of Andrology.
