Colleagues gathered together with family and friends of Professor Cranston to pay tribute and celebrate his distinguished medical career so far within the field of urology and transplantation.
During the half day symposium, invited speakers presented a fascinating collection of stories and reflections.
The memorable occassion took place in the Richard Doll Lecture Theatre on Old Road Campus and was chaired by Professor Freddie Hamdy, head of NDS, and Professor Andy Carr, head of the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences at the University of Oxford.
After the presentation of the papers, Professor Cranston and his guests enjoyed a black tie dinner at Balliol College, Oxford.
In addition to his post at NDS, Professor Cranston is a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, an Honorary Consultant Urological Surgeon in the Oxford University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, and a Fellow of Green Templeton College, Oxford and joint curator of 13 Norham Gardens. Outside of medicine he serves as a licensed lay minister in the Church of England and is on the board of the Oxford Centre for Mission Studies.
