Young Investigator Awards

 Health Sciences

Applications are now being called for the annual Young Investigator Award, a joint initiative of the University's Faculty of Health Sciences and the Children, Youth and Women's Health Service (CYWHS).

This highly successful award, now in its sixth year, rewards excellence in both science and the ability to communicate and "sell" that science. The award is open to postgraduate students and new post-doctoral scientists from the University of Adelaide, CYWHS and the Child Health Research Institute. Applicants must be researching into an aspect of children's or women's health.

In the lead-up to the finals, applicants are judged on scientific merit. At the finals, a media panel judges ability to communicate to a general audience.

First prize is $1000 plus a $1500 conference prize. Runners-up each receive $500. Applications close July 11.

For more information, including eligibility criteria and application forms, visit or contact organising committee chair Dr Edna Bates on (08) 8161 7388 or email
