In honour of the late Jeanne Manery Fisher, Professor of Biochemistry, University of Toronto, an eminent woman will be selected by the Society every second year for her scientific accomplishments, and will present a keynote lecture at the Society's Annual Meeting. Dr. Fisher was not only an outstanding biochemist, but a remarkable teacher. She was instrumental in creating the Society's Equal Opportunity Committee and fought diligently for the position of women in science.
The nominee must be a Canadian woman scientist (landed immigrant or Canadian citizen) who has a distinguished career in the fields of either biochemistry, molecular or cellular biology resulting from her outstanding contributions to research, teaching or society. The nominee need not be a member of the Society, and nominations may be made by any scientist.
