John C. T. Church
"Dr Church is a retired orthopaedic surgeon. As well as being the inventor of a modular hip replacement system now used internationally, he is the primary force behind the introduction of maggot therapy programmes for wound care in the UK.
"His long and illustrious career saw him establish and teach in Orthopaedic Departments in the UK and East Africa - where he also ran a hospital. When he devoted himself full time to developing biotherapy he founded the International Biotherapy Society and the International Conferences of Biotherapy, travelling worldwide to inspire others in its use.
"Dr Church then turned his attention to canine olfactory detection. He played a pivotal role in the advancement of this field and his activities still continue to advance our understanding and practice of wound care, rehabilitation and world health. "
