Research Excellence Awards

Sponsored by the PA Research Foundation, the Research Excellence Awards showcase the best clinical and laboratory/basic science research undertaken by student and early career researchers across Metro South Health (MSH) and affiliated research institutes.

The Research Excellence Awards support all forms of health research and are open to health professionals engaged in research in addition to their clinical practice (clinician-researchers) as well as non-clinician-researchers.

Abstracts are invited for oral and poster presentations. This year, two additional poster categories will be introduced. These 'Collaborative Research' categories will showcase MSH partnerships producing high impact, innovative research.

Abstracts are to adhere to the template provided on the abstract portal. The abstract submission deadline is Friday 28 May 2021.
