Nominations open for Royal Society Croonian Medal and Lecture
There is one month left to submit nominations for the Croonian Medal and Lecture, the Royal Society’s premier lecture in the biological sciences.
The Croonian Medal and Lecture is open to nominations of senior scientists working anywhere in the world. Individuals and teams may be nominated for this award. There are no eligibility restrictions for nominators.
Nominations close on 24 February 2023. The winner will be announced in the summer.
Nominations are particularly welcome when they recognise women, individuals from ethnic minority groups and individuals with disabilities, as well as when they represent a broad range of academic institutions, career stages and industries.
The Croonian Medal was most recently awarded to Professor Dame Ottoline Leyser DBE FRS for her central role in two of the most important discoveries regarding the nature and perception of plant hormones, and for her contributions to gender equality in science.
The Croonian Medal and Lecture is part of the Royal Society’s medals and awards programme, which seeks to celebrate the work of individuals and teams making distinguished contributions to scientific progress, from across the diverse scientific community.
Around 30 medals and awards are announced each summer, celebrating excellence across the biological, physical, and applied sciences.
