In 2011, to celebrate its first 100 years, the Biochemical Society introduced a new award to replace the Jubilee Lecture.
The Centenary Award is awarded annually to a biochemist of distinction from any part of the world.
The winner of the award presents the Sir Frederick Gowland Hopkins Memorial Lecture (the original award and medal are no longer a separate award) and is invited to submit an article to a Society-owned journal.
The Lecturer receives an honorarium of £3000 and the Centenary medal. The award was designed by the artist Tom Phillips.
The 2016 Centenary Award will be awarded to Patrick Cramer at the 80th Harden Conference: Machines on Genes IV - Mechanisms of Actions of Large Macromolecular Machines on Genes Across Biological Scales at Shrigley Hall Hotel, Macclesfield, UK, 31 July—4 August 2016.
