With a record number of abstracts submitted in recent years, the prestigious Research Excellence Awards returned to the 60th PAH Health Symposium in 2021.
Sponsored by the PA Research Foundation and Translational Research Institute (TRI), the Research Excellence Awards showcased 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 were invited for oral and poster presentations. In 2021 two additional poster categories were introduced. These 'Collaborative Research' categories showcased MSH partnerships producing high impact, innovative research.
The Research Excellence Awards oral finalist presentations took place via a Zoom webinar virtual platform on Thursday 26 August 2021. There wasn't a poster exhibition this year. Instead, ePosters were on continuous display on this site and the event app.
Congratulations to the poster and oral award winners.
