NUKEMS have an exciting programme of events which we hope will really help our early career scientists. We also encourage active participation through the pre-submission of questions for certain sessions, and these question boxes can be found on our event website via the links on the attached poster. The event is open to UKEMS Members and any early career scientists within the field who would benefit from this event! We would like the UKEMS membership to share with any of their contacts who might be interested or who can share further. Thank you to UKEMS for their support.

Last year, at our annual IGG meeting, we held the first Richard Williams Memorial Award honouring the scientific contributions and memory of Dr. Richard Williams, our past IGG committee member. This award was kindly sponsored by Lhasa and was set up to support early career investigators within industry. Supported by the IGG, The Richard Williams Memorial Award will sponsor one individual a year to attend and present at the United Kingdom Environmental Mutagen Society (UKEMS) meeting.

It is with huge excitement that today, we are able to introduce you to the first winner of the Richard Williams Memorial Award, Amy Wilson.
