Professor Dalby received the Industry and Academic Collaboration Award, which recognises an outstanding individual who has made an inspirational contribution to the biosciences and to industry–academia interactions. He will be given the opportunity to deliver a lecture at a Society event, and is invited to submit an article to a Society-owned publication.

Professor Dalby commented: "I was very surprised, but clearly delighted, to receive news of winning this award. Over the last few years, much of my effort, along with colleagues such as Professor Manual Salmeron-Sanchez, has focused on engaging UK industry to form a community to support development of PhD students into diverse careers. This award makes all this effort feel very worthwhile."
