The European Journal of Clinical Nutrition is happy to announce the two research awards in memory of Professor John Waterlow and Professor John Garrow, two eminent and world renowned nutrition scientists intimately associated with the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition will be running again in 2020. 

Professor John Waterlow (1916-2010) was the founding editor of the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, which had its early roots in the journal Human Nutrition: Clinical Nutrition.
