The prestigious Research Excellence Awards returned to the 59th PAH Health Symposium.
The Research Excellence Awards showcase a multidisciplinary program of oral and poster presentations—awarding the best allied health, nursing, medical, surgical and laboratory/basic science research undertaken by student and early career researchers.
This year, for the first time, a third ‘health innovations*’ category was introduced to recognise innovative health research projects outside of direct clinical care and basic science.
