This Fellowship was created in 2015 following receipt of a generous bequest from the Estate of Professor David Harvey (Committee Member 1971-1979; Meetings Secretary 1975-1977; General Secretary 1977-1979).

Recipients hold the Fellowship for a period of two years, and deliver a special lecture, the "David Harvey Lecture" at the summer meeting of the Society. Fellows will commit to attending at least two of the subsequent three meetings of the Society where they will contribute to the Society's goal of advancing newborn care through academic excellence, by discussion and critical appraisal of original research papers presented.

The award includes an honorarium, attendance expenses, including travel expenses within the UK, and waiver of membership fees during their tenure.

The lectures given so far are as follows:

2017, Brighton: Professor Mike Symonds, University of Nottingham
Brown adipose tissue - essential for effective adaptation at birth and lifelong metabolic health

Thermal care: more complex than we thought?
