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 Memorial Lecture medal
  • £2000 prize money
  • The opportunity to submit an article to a Society-owned publication

The winner of the 2020 Keilin Memorial Lecture is Judy Hurst
