Each year the Biochemical Society makes a series of prestigious awards that recognise excellence and achievement in both specific and general fields of science.

All of our awards and medal lectureships carry a range of monetary prizes and career enhancing opportunities. Recognition includes invitation to submit an article to one of our journals, present an Award Lecture at a Society event or webinar, mentoring, and the chance to help shape the future of the Society and our publishing arm, Portland Press.  

Nine awards are presented annually and five are biennially or triennially awarded.

Nominations that reflect the full breadth and diversity of the molecular bioscience community are encouraged and can be submitted by both members and non-members.
