Research Presentation Awards

With a record number of abstracts submitted in recent years, the prestigious Research Presentation Awards will return to the 2024 PAH Health Symposium (PAHHS).

The Research Presentation Awards Oral and Poster Sessions will showcase the best clinical and laboratory/basic science research undertaken across Metro South Health (MSH) and affiliated research institutes. 

Abstracts are invited from clinical and basic science researchers across all stages of career for presentations at the 2024 PAHHS Research Presentation Awards Sessions.  

Student researchers and early career researchers (ECR) presenting at the sessions as oral or poster finalists are eligible for consideration of Best Student/ECR Research Presentation Awards, sponsored by the PA Research Foundation.

The highest scoring abstracts submitted by student researchers and early career researchers engaging in clinical or laboratory/basic science research will be selected for the Research Presentation Awards Oral Finalist and Poster Finalist Presentations. 

All abstracts selected for presentation at the Poster Session are eligible for a People’s Choice Presentation Award.
