An annual Memorial Lecture was established in 1994 by the Graham Fraser Foundation in commemoration of the work of Graham Fraser and incorporated from 1996 into the programme of the Section of Otology of the Royal Society of Medicine, England.

The Lectureship is open to any person who, in the opinion of the Selection Committee, is qualified to contribute to the advancement of the science and practice of otology, particularly with respect to the understanding, management and alleviation of profound deafness.

In 2014 the 20th Graham Fraser Memorial Lecture was the last to be held at the Royal Society of Medicine in London. Since 2015 the lectures have been hosted by the British Cochlear Implant Group within their annual conference to facilitate attendance by cochlear implant professionals nationwide.

We welcome your nominations for the Memorial Lecture 2021. The 2021 lecture will be online in line with BCIG eConference in May 2021.

We are still planning to have Cathy Birman deliver the Graham Fraser Memorial Lecture in 2022 (initially intended for 2021 but postponed due to COVID-19).

Closing date for nominations: 31st of August 2020.
