This award is given each year for outstanding contributions by a New Investigator to acknowledge and reward the achievements of such researchers. The award was re-named in 2007 in recognition of the late President's support of young scientists. The award takes the form of a research grant of £1000 and the recipient is asked to give a keynote talk about their work at the Easter Meeting. The basis for the award is excellence in research by someone near the beginning of their research career.
