Scientists honoured in Biochemical Society Awards



Eleven eminent scientists and exceptional early career researchers have been honoured in the annual Biochemical Society Awards.


The Awards recognize molecular bioscientists for the excellence and profound impact their work has had, both for the scientific community and society in general. They also allow exceptional work by early career researchers to be highlighted.

The recipients have made cutting-edge discoveries and advances in fields ranging from microbiology to cancer research, neurochemistry, biotechnology, energy and metabolism, genes and signalling.

Professor Anne Dell, Chair of the Awards Committee, said:

 “The Biochemical Society's Awards allow the excellent work of high calibre scientists at all stages of their careers to be recognised and rewarded. The 2017 Award lecture series will showcase the outstanding contributions to molecular bioscience that the winners have made during their careers”.

You can read more about the recipients on the Awards section of the website. 

All of the award prizes and medal lectureships will take place in 2017 and all award winners will be invited to submit an article to a Society-owned publication.
