Humphry Davy and Claude Bernard Lectures

This prize lecture was an exchange lecture between France and the UK.

The Humphry Davy Lecture (when held in France) and the Claude Bernard Lecture (when held in the UK) was established by the Académie des Sciences and the Royal Society in 1984.

The lecture was named in honour of Humphry Davy FRS, who travelled in France and the physiologist Claude Bernard.
