Rank Lecture grant

This grant supports scientists to give keynote presentations at prestigious national and international conferences.

Previous recipients have spoken at the Nutrition Society, the Association of Applied Biologists, the Biochemical Society and Diabetes UK.

The organisers of the conference apply for the grant (rather than speakers themselves).

They usually choose the speaker, although in the past our committee has approved a selection of candidates or picked a candidate from a shortlist.

The grant covers a £500 fee for the lecturer. There is also up to £1,000 for travel outside the UK, or £500 for travel within it. (The institution sends us an invoice after the event.)
