Professor David de Kretser and Professor Alan Trounson of Monash's Institute of Reproduction and Development have earned the Committee for Melbourne's Achiever Awards.
The awards recognise the significant contribution made by the two medical scientists to the world's understanding of human and animal reproduction, infertility treatments and assisted reproductive technologies.
Their work during the past two decades has helped to further emphasise Melbourne as Australia's capital for medical research.
Professor de Kretser is a world leader in male infertility research. His work to define how sperm develop is used by the medical community all over the world to provide better management for infertile men. By exploring the role of the new hormones inhibin and activin, potential applications have emerged in conditions beyond the reproductive system, such as in liver disease, prostate cancer and inflammation.
Professor Alan Trounson pioneered the development of human IVF and associated technologies now in use worldwide. He also developed the artificial breeding techniques of embryo transfer and embryo freezing in cattle, sheep and other domestic animal species, and his recent advances in animal cloning will be of benefit in agriculture and human medicine.
"It is certainly a great honour to be recognised in this way by the leaders of the Melbourne community," said Professor de Kretser.
"We are proud to represent Melbourne in our collaborative studies with leading medical scientists in Asia and beyond," said Professor Trounson.
Mr Jack Smorgon AM, chairman, Committee for Melbourne, presented the awards at a function on 15 October.
