Young Researcher of the Year 2016

Submissions are now closed for 2016. 

Parkinson’s NSW is calling for submissions for our 2016 Young Researcher of the Year Award. This exciting award is open to early career scientists under 40 who are PhD students and 5 years post (relative to opportunity) and currently researching into Parkinson’s disease in NSW.

The award is designed to recognise the role that young researchers play in advancing the knowledge of Parkinson’s and highlight the importance of scientists being able to communicate scientific concepts into easy to understand language to promote awareness.

This is a fantastic opportunity for early career researchers to raise their profile within the Parkinson’s research community and the broader community.

Our expert judging panel of the scientific and lay community will narrow the submissions down to four finalists. The finalists will be invited to attend the recipient announcement event on October 30th in Sydney where they will receive a certificate and have the opportunity to do a presentation about their research project. The 2016 Young Research of the Year will be will receive a $250 voucher, a trophy to keep and have their articles published in the Parkinson’s NSW Stand By Me magazine.
