Through the generosity of the late Graeme Lewis, and his wife, Professor Gillian Lewis, the Graeme Lewis Prize in Microbiology was awarded for the first time in 2012.

Graeme Lewis, though trained and practising in finance and accounting, developed a deep interest in Microbiology through his wife’s research and teaching. He held a strong belief that excellent research in the discipline was fundamental to developing less disruptive and consumptive approaches to energy and food production, and materials processing. The purpose of the Prize is to encourage students to pursue research in microbiology.
