Overview:

Lesley Goodman read Zoology at Girton College, Cambridge and completed her PhD at the University of Liverpool. She then joined Queen Mary College, London and devoted her professional life to encouraging the study of insect physiology and behaviour. Prior to her death in 1998 she set up the LJ Goodman Insect Physiology Research Trust with the aims of advancing the education of the public in the knowledge, understanding and appreciation of all aspects of insect physiology thereby promoting the control and conservation of insect species. The Trustees have now decided that the funding of the Lesley Goodman Award, through the Royal Entomological Society, would be a fitting tribute to her interests.

The award will promote research into aspects of insect physiology and behaviour through the writing and printing or otherwise reproduced material such as periodicals, books, leaflets or other documents, films or electronically recorded material. It will also be used to hold or support exhibitions, meetings, lectures, classes, seminars and courses either alone or with others.

The award is not necessarily envisaged as a prize for excellence, but, for example, could be taken as an encouragement for worthwhile projects including assistance with ongoing postgraduate research for which alternative funding might not be forthcoming.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

Eligibility:

  • For advancing knowledge, understanding and appreciation of all aspects of insect physiology and behaviour, thereby promoting the control and conservation of insect species.
