The Centenary Institute’s Medical Innovation Award recognises bold young researchers who are taking the risks to ask the big questions of today – those questions that have most people saying “but that’s impossible”.
The Prize focuses on creativity – the essential ingredient in all human endeavour, whether in science, art or marketing. It will be presented to the biomedical research scientist based in Australia who demonstrates the greatest creativity in their scientific approach in a given year. Each year tens of thousands are engaged and inspired by the Prize entries, making it the largest and most prestigious national research prize for young biomedical researchers in Australia.
Professor Chris Semsarian and his Molecular Cardiology team were recently awarded the major Research Excellence Prize at the SLHD Research and Innovation Symposium.
Centenary scientist, Claudio Counoupas, was invited by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to present his research at the 3rd annual CTVD meeting, held in Seattle 21-23 June 2017.
Congratulations to Centenary Governor Josephine Sukkar and husband Tony named Members of the Order of Australia for their service to the community.
