Graham Bull prize in clinical science and Goulstonian lectureship

Information on how to apply for the Graham Bull prize in clinical science and Goulstonian lectureship.

Graham Bull prize

The Graham Bull prize was established in 1988 in honour of Sir Graham Bull, who was the first director of the Clinical Research Centre at Northwick Park. A trust for the Graham Bull prize was set up to provide money for young research workers under the age of 45 who feel that they have made a major contribution to clinical science.

The prize as designed by the trust is specifically for an application and not for nomination of individuals. The work can cover a wide range of expertise, such as:

  • molecular and cellular biology
  • imaging technology
  • psychiatry
  • health sciences.

The award is open to RCP members and fellows who must apply for their own work to be considered. The sum of £1,000 is offered on a competitive basis each year.

Goulstonian lecture

The winner of the prize will be invited to deliver the Goulstonian lecture, an annual lecture endowed in 1635 by Mrs Ellen Goulston in memory of her husband, Dr Theodore Goulston FRCP and offered a £100 honorarium. 


Researchers must be under the age of 45 on the application closing date (as per the terms of the original bequest), and must be a member or fellow of RCP London.
