Bravo! award for Italian lecturer.

IMPORTANT contributions to forensic science have resulted in a lecturer at Huddersfield University receiving a prestigious honour in his native Italy.

Dr Stefano Vanin has added a new body of knowledge to the discipline of forensic entomology - the crucial information that can be yielded by the activities of insects at a crime scene.

His work has led to the award of one of the prizes at the 2012 edition of the Premio Citt Impresa.

Dr Vanin is from Treviso, in northern Italy, and came to the University of Huddersfield from the University of Padua.

His pioneering work on forensic entomology has played a significant part in major murder investigations.

He is the forensic entomologist of the project for the correct recovery of the skeletons of World War I soldiers found in the Italian Alps.

Dr Vanin received his Premio Citt Impresa award at a ceremony in Vicenza.

The prize was a small colour-coded fragment from a large sculpture created for the event.

All of the prizewinners receive a similar portion.

"All of the pieces are different, but if they were put together they would symbolise improvement and development in northern Italy,'' said Dr Vanin.
