The WDM Paton Historical Research Fund was established jointly by Sir William Paton and the British Pharmacological Society to support the efforts of anyone who is studying some aspect of the history of pharmacology including ideas, techniques, equipment, etc. used in the development of experimental pharmacology. The fund is intended to cover travel costs, photocopying costs and similar expenses associated with a project.
Expressions of interest should be sent to Paul Tizard, the Membership and Awards Officer, and may be submitted at any time.
In 2007 Professor Richard Green was the beneficiary of an award, which led to a publication in the British Journal of Pharmacology.
