Dr Shaun Killen of the Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health and Comparative Medicine was awarded the Society for Experimental Biology’s President’s Medal in the Animal Section. These awards recognise young scientists of outstanding merit. Shaun’s work has contributed toward understanding how environmental stress alters links between physiology and behaviour with evolutionary implications. His current research examines the role of physiology in social behaviours, including group foraging, dominance hierarchies, group locomotion, and animal social networks.
