Cheryll Anne Tickle, CBE FRS[4] FRSE FMedSci, is a distinguished British scientist, known for her work in developmental biology and specifically for her research into the process by which vertebrate limbs develop ab ovo. She is an Emeritus Professor at the University of Bath.[6][7]

Education

Tickle was educated at the University of Cambridge graduating with a Master of Arts degree in 1967, and received her Ph.D. from the University of Glasgow in 1970.[8][9]

Research

Tickle's research in Developmental Biology investigates how single cells, the fertilised egg, gives rise to a new individual during embryogenesis.[12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21][22][23][24][25]

Awards and honours

Tickle was elected as a fellow of the Royal Society in 1998, a fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 2000, a fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences in 2001, and a member of the European Molecular Biology Organisation in 2001. In 2004 the University of St. Andrews awarded her an honorary doctorate. In 2005 she was named a Commander of The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE).[26] She also serves as a governor of the Caledonian Research Foundation.[27] Her nomination for the Royal Society reads:
