Pump Priming Award

The BNF Drummond Pump Priming Award is an annual scheme run by the British Nutrition Foundation awarding a grant of £5000 to help a newly-appointed university lecturer or research fellow in human nutrition to undertake the pilot work needed to generate data that can be used as the basis of a more substantial grant application.

The Award is made possible through BNF’s management of the Drummond Memorial Fund, established in memory of the work and contribution of Sir Jack Drummond.

Unfortunately, due to current restrictions around laboratory and human study-based research as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be offering the BNF Drummond Pump Priming award in 2021.
