Francis Crick 1916-2004
|Awarded for||Prize lecture given on a subject in genetics, molecular biology and neurobiology|
|Presented by||Royal Society|
|Reward(s)||Bronze Medal and gift of £2,000|
The Francis Crick Medal and Lecture is a prize lecture of the Royal Society established in 2003 with an endowment from Sydney Brenner, the late Francis Crick's close friend and former colleague. It is delivered annually in biology, particularly the areas which Francis Crick worked (genetics, molecular biology and neurobiology), and also to theoretical work. The medal is also intended for young scientists, i.e. under 40, or at career stage corresponding to being under 40 should their career have been interrupted.
