Biochemical Society Honorary Members

Biochemical Society Honorary Members

Honorary Membership was instituted at the very beginning of the Society's existence and, although the criteria for election altered throughout the 20th century, the abiding desire of the Society has been to honour distinguished scientists, e.g. Nobel Laureates, working in the UK and elsewhere who have a clear connection with the Society.
