Bayliss–Starling Prize Lecture

Established in 1960 as a joint memorial to Bayliss and Starling. This was a triennial lecture (to 2015), subject to the agreement of the Editorial Board, is published in The Journal of Physiology. There is a £500 prize. From 2015, following a generous donation from The Bayliss and Starling Society, this lecture is now awarded annually and will be given alternately by an established physiologist and an early-career physiologist.
