On Thursday 10 November 2011, Royal Society fellow and RGS Old Boy, Professor Ron Laskey, returned to the School to unveil the gift of his Royal Medal to the School in the Biology Department with Old Boys Jeremy Clare, Peter King and Dr Richard Pearson, who attended RGS during Professor Laskey’s era.
Professor Laskey hoped that the donation of his medal to the School and its display in the Biology Department would encourage our budding scientists and medics to pursue a career in medical research after leaving RGS. Professor Laskey left RGS to go to Oxford University before joining the Zoology Department at Cambridge University in 1983. He left behind the RGS Biology Department’s pet Cayman, named Yapp after his tendency to snap at his keepers. Yapp unfortunately died from snapping too vigorously at a heating element in his vivarium, thus electrocuting himself.
