The Brett Tindall Memorial Lecture is an annual lecture awarded by the Kirby Institute to a world leader in infectious disease research.

It is awarded in memory of Dr Brett Tindall, who was one of the Kirby Institute’s first researchers in the 1980s and died of AIDS in 1994. Brett's research focussed on the process of seroconversion and the body's responses to the entry of HIV.
