Nominations for the 2014 Fenner Medal are now open.
Closing Date 29 July 2013
The Fenner Medal recognises outstanding contributions to science by the late Professor F.J. Fenner, AC, CMG, MBE, MD, FAA, FRS. Its purpose is to recognise distinguished research in biology (excluding the biomedical sciences) by scientists no more than 40 years of age in the calendar year of nomination, except in the case of significant interruptions to a research career. The award is made annually and is restricted to candidates who are normally resident in Australia and for research conducted mainly in Australia.
There is also a $1000 prize attached to this award.
NB If a proposed candidate is already the recipient of an Academy award, the second award must be for a distinct, additional, body of work undertaken since the first award, and/or work in a different field.
