Support for the Academy's awards provides life-changing experiences for young scientists like Hayley.

Hayley Teasdale is the recipient of the 2017 Adam J Berry Memorial Fund established in the memory of a young Australian scientist and is co-managed on behalf of the Berry family by the Academy and the Foundation of the National Institutes of Health in the USA.

The Fund is intended to support one early-career Australian researcher to work in the USA at an institute of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) each year. In addition to gaining valuable experience for themselves, the researchers are expected to make a contribution to the research program of the institute they are visiting.

Your support of the Academy’s awards program this Christmas will ensure the Academy continues to provide life changing experiences for other young scientists like Hayley.
