Early career scientist

The British Nutrition Foundation Drummond Early Career Scientist Award is an annual scheme run by the British Nutrition Foundation to recognise early career nutrition scientists who show great potential to be future leaders in the field. The Award has been made possible through BNF’s management of the Drummond Memorial Fund, established in memory of the work and contribution of Sir Jack Drummond.
 
Applicants to the British Nutrition Foundation Drummond Early Career Scientist Award are required to complete an application form and submit an abstract for a mini review that describes an emerging area of human nutrition science and would be suitable for submission to Nutrition Bulletin. As the official journal of the British Nutrition Foundation, Nutrition Bulletin is an international, peer-reviewed journal publishing concise and informative articles about recent developments in current thinking in human nutrition science. It provides an interface between stakeholders in universities, industry, government, research, healthcare, education and media. The aims and scope of Nutrition Bulletin can be read here
 
Applicants are judged on their contributions to nutrition science, the scientific merit and clarity of communication of their abstract, as well as their potential to become future leaders in the field. 
 
We are currently accepting applications and details of how to apply for the 2022 award can be found below.
