Overview:

Paton Prize Bursary for Research into the History of Physiology

The Physiological Society established the Paton Prize in 1994 to encourage the study of the history of the major ideas and concepts that have shaped modern physiology, as well as the scientists who conduct the work. (The fund originated with a donation from Professor Sir William Paton with a matching contribution from the Society.) The Prize takes the form of a bursary to support such studies, with funding of up to £1000 to cover travel and research expenses. The Society's History & Archives Committee seeks to promote interest in the history of physiology among younger Affiliates and Members of The Society, as well as more established scientists.

 Support can be for up to £1000. Additional funding might be available in exceptional circumstances.
