Genetics Society Medals and Lectures

Genetics Society Medals and Lectures

The Genetics Society awards four medals on an annual basis.  Winners are chosen by the committee from membership nominations.

In addition, the prestigious Mendel Medal is awarded by The President, usually twice during their term of office.

A Centenary Medal will be awarded for the first time in 2019 to celebrate the 100 years of the Genetics Society.
