Georgina Sweet Awards
Georgina Sweet Awards for Women in Quantitative Biomedical Science
The Georgina Sweet Awards for Women in Quantitative Biomedical Science were created by Professor Leann Tilley as part of her Australian Research Council Laureate Fellowship program to promote and support female scientists who demonstrate excellence in the area of Quantitative Biomedical Science.
Two new awards were established in 2016:
Georgina Sweet Award for Women in Quantitative Biomedical Science: To date six awards (of $25,000 each) have been awarded to Australian female researchers who demonstrate excellence in the area of quantitative biomedical science. We congratulate Megan Maher (currently the LCPSF Secretary), and Stephanie Gras (Speaking in session 8 on Tuesday morning) on their 2017 awards. See the website for details of other awardees and when to apply in 2018.
