University of Bath professor honoured in Biochemical Society Awards
A University of Bath professor has been awarded a prestigious lectureship by the Biochemical Society for his work to understand the development of Type-2 Diabetes.
As well as being invited to present the award lecture, Professor Holman receives an honorarium of £2000 and is invited to submit a scientific article to a Biochemical Society-owned journal.
I am delighted to be awarded the Sir Philip Randle Lecture Prize. I feel greatly honoured to follow the previous eminent winners of this award in the area of research pioneered by Sir Philip. I would like to thank and acknowledge all those who have made this award possible, particularly the many highly talented co-workers from Bath University and friends and colleagues from collaborating laboratories”.
Professor Anne Dell, chair of the awards committee, said: “The Biochemical Society's Awards allow the excellent work of high calibre scientists at all stages of their careers to be recognised and rewarded. The 2017 Award lecture series will showcase the outstanding contributions to molecular bioscience that the winners have made during their careers.”
