The Biochemical Society have opened nominations for their 2021 Awards, which recognize established researchers as well as scientists in the early stages of their career.

Each year the Biochemical Society presents a series of prestigious awards that recognize excellence and achievement in both specific and general fields of science. Six of these awards are presented annually and the remaining are awarded either biennially or triennially. Candidates are nominated by their peers and the winners are agreed by a judging panel of respected scientists, from across a range of different scientific areas.

Each Award recipient will be given the opportunity to deliver an award or medal lecture in 2021. All of the awards and medal lectureships carry prize money and, as part of the prize, winners will also be invited to submit an article to a Society-owned publication.

Professor Colin Bingle, Professor of Respiratory Cell and Molecular Biology at the University of Sheffield, and Chair of the Biochemical Society’s Awards Committee, says: 

“We all have outstanding colleagues at different levels of their academic career, and it’s great to be able to be in a position to offer those people recognition for their hard work and dedication in the field of molecular biosciences. The Biochemical Society Awards seeks to celebrate the achievements of our colleagues and we are looking for nominations at different levels of seniority in all aspect of molecular biosciences.”

Now in their 59th year, there are 9 award categories open in 2021 and nominations are welcome from across the UK and overseas. Nominations are also positively encouraged from a diverse range of backgrounds and subject areas within the molecular biosciences. The deadline for nominations is 31 January 2020.
