Professor Solomon receiving the Moxon Medal from College Treasurer, Professor Linda Luxon
Professor Tom Solomon, from the University of Liverpool’s Institute of Infection and Global Health, has been awarded the Moxon Medal of the Royal College of Physicians of London.
The medal is awarded every three years for “outstanding observation and research in clinical medicine”. Established in 1886, the award honours the memory of Walter Moxon, a former Fellow and Croonian Lecturer of the Royal College, who practised, taught and researched medicine at Guy’s Hospital in London.
Professor Solomon said: “I am delighted to receive this recognition on behalf of the Brain Infections Group; they have worked incredibly hard, to help bring these terrible conditions under control.”
Professor Linda Luxon, Treasurer of the College, awarded Professor Solomon the Medal following a lecture he gave at the College’s Advanced Medicine Course. She said: “The Moxon medal is one of the College’s most prestigious awards.
“Professor Solomon was awarded the College’s Linacre Lectureship a fews ago, and it is wonderful to see the progress he and his team have made since then.”
The work of the Liverpool Brain Infections Group, along with other research from the Institute of Infection and Global Health is featured in the Guardian’s Saturday magazine supplment, on 14th March 2015.
