2017 – Anita Thapar

The Frances Hoggan medal recognises the contribution of outstanding female researchers in STEMM, with a connection to Wales.

In 2017 the medal was awarded to Professor Anita Thapar CBE, of Cardiff University, for her research in child and adolescent psychiatry.

“It is an immense honour to receive this award” Professor Thapar said. “My scientific work has benefited enormously over the years from jointly working with excellent colleagues. Many of these have been young female scientists – so I hope this award serves as inspiration for them.”
