Geoffrey Walker Award

The "Geoffrey Walker Award" was established in recognition of Dr Walker's contribution to Clinical Biochemistry in the Yorkshire-Trent Region. Dr Walker served as Secretary of the ACB (1972-1976,) Chair of the Yorkshire-Trent Region (1978-1980) and as the Yorkshire-Trent Representative on the ACB Council (1981-1983.) In 1992 he was made an 'Emeritus Member' of the ACB in view of his exceptional contribution to the association.

The award is open to all ACB members within the TNY region who are in active training.

The award takes the form of the presentation of short oral papers at the first regional scientific meeting of the year. Applications generally open in December.

The person who is judged to have given the best presentation is awarded a £100 book token and a £1,000 bursary towards the cost of a national or international meeting. £50 book tokens are awarded to all other candidates presenting at the meeting.
