Grants & Awards

Medals

The Society is committed to recognising and rewarding excellence in endocrinology research and clinical practice.

Since its inception in 1946, the Society has honoured individuals who have helped to significantly advance the field with an annual programme of Medals, Prizes and Awards. The Society awards seven medals per year. All medal lectures are given at the Society’s BES conference. Medallists are selected by the Society’s Nominations Committee from submitted nominations; nominations are considered on the basis of scientific excellence, broad contribution to the discipline and impact.

The Dale Medal is awarded, on an annual basis, to a member of the scientific community in recognition of outstanding studies which have changed our understanding of endocrinology in a fundamental way. The Dale Medal is the highest accolade bestowed by the Society.
