The general public and research community are being encouraged to have their say by deciding who should be named the ‘People’s Choice’ winner of the 2019 Centenary Institute Medical Innovation Awards (CIMIA).
The CIMIA is considered to be one of the most prestigious prizes for early-career researchers, by recognising bold young researchers who are taking the risks to ask the big questions of today.
A large number of entries have been received for this year’s Awards, demonstrating the breadth of young scientists working to find new ways to treat and cure society’s most debilitating diseases.
These life-changing projects can be viewed on the 2019 Centenary Institute Medical Innovation Awards entry page, where members of the public are able to choose their favourite by clicking on the ‘Vote’ button on the individual entry pages.
The entry with the most votes will be crowned winner of the People’s Choice Award, and will take home a $2,000 prize to help them continue their innovative research.
