The Fellowship may be held at any time during the year and will provide living and travel expenses for the successful applicant to spend approximately two months working at the Laboratory of the Marine Biological Association, Plymouth. Bench fees will be waived and a small sum may be available to assist with research expenses. Usually one Fellowship will be awarded each year.

Background

The Peter Baker Fellowship was been established to commemorate the scientific life and contributions of Professor Peter F. Baker FRS. Peter carried out much of his important scientific work at the Laboratory of the Marine Biological Association in Plymouth and was a Member of the Council and the Physiological Society’s Governor of the Association. The Fellowship is provided by funds contributed by individuals and Scientific Societies from all over the world. The Fund is held in trust by the Physiological Society, the Company of Biologists and the Marine Biological Association, and is awarded by the Marine Biological Association. It is the intention of the Trustees that the Fellowship is used to encourage the interest of young research workers in marine biological research, particularly fundamental physiological research, to which Peter himself contributed so much.
