The Centenary Award

In 2011 the Biochemical Society introduced the Centenary 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 is given:

  • The opportunity to present the Sir Frederick Gowland Hopkins Memorial Lecture at a Society conference (the original award and medal are no longer a separate award)
  • The opportunity to submit an article to a Society-owned publication.
  • £3000 prize money
  • The Centenary medal. (The award was designed by the artist Tom Phillips).

Dame Kay Davies presented her award lecture as part of the Biochemistry Focus webinar series: From diagnosis to therapy in Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
