The Keilin Memorial Lecture was first awarded in 1964 to commemorate the late David Keilin.
The lecturer and subject of the lecture are selected, by the Awards Committee, from a field related to the interests of Keilin in bioenergetics, electron transfer and mitochondrial biology. The winner of the award is given the opportunity to present a lecture at a Society event. The award is presented every other year, however, the Society has the power to modify this programme.
The Keilin Lecturer receives a medal and £2000 prize money and the awardee is invited to submit an article to a Society-owned publication.
The 2018 Keilin Memorial Lecturer, Neil Hunter (University of Sheffield, UK) will present his award lecture in 2018 at the 84th Harden Conference taking place in Oxford in September.
