Congratulations to Professor Sheena Radford on receiving the Biochemical Society’s Centenary Award for 2025.


Professor Sheena Radford has been awarded the Biochemical Society’s Centenary Award for 2025.

The Centenary Award is awarded annually to a molecular bioscientist based on the impact of their research and a demonstrable commitment to build, support, and nurture talent within the scientific community.

Sheena said: "I am delighted and humbled to receive this award. I have been a member of the Biochemical Society since I was an undergraduate, which makes the award even more special for me. I have been lucky to have worked with a fantastic group of talented early career scientists and collaborators both in the Astbury Centre at Leeds and across the globe. I thank them all. The very best of science is performed in collaborative and supportive teams. If I have helped to promote that working ethos, and to help others, then I have done my job! The field of protein folding has never been more exciting and I hope that this award will inspire others to join our community and help to tackle the dire consequences caused when protein folding goes wrong.”
