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 the British Nutrition Foundation'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. Find out about the aims and scope of Nutrition Bulletin.
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.
The Early Career Scientist Award was not awarded in 2022.
