Every year, the Microbiology Society recognises and awards Prizes to outstanding individuals who have made a significant contribution to the field of microbiology. Nominations are now open for our upcoming Prizes, and Society members are invited to nominate individuals via our forms available online.
The Microbiology Society is committed to creating and actively encouraging an inclusive culture, both in our membership and in the wider microbiology community. As such, we want to honour a diverse range of microbiologists and urge members to consider the full breadth of the field when nominating their colleagues.
