The Gardner Lectureship was established in 1995 with a generous bequest in the Will of the late Professor Phillip Gardner, who established the European Group for Rapid Viral Diagnosis, one of predecessors of the European Society for Clinical Virology (ESCV). The bequest was to endow an Annual Lectureship to be given by an eminent virologist, preferably but not essentially, with a central interest and practical experience in the field of diagnostic or clinical virology. This allows the ESCV to invite a scientist with an international reputation to give a lecture during the Society’s Annual Meeting.
