The 2025 awards will be open in early 2024.
The Jacques Miller Medal for Experimental Biomedicine has been established to honour the contributions made to science by Professor Jacques Miller AC FAA FRS that include the discovery of the function of the thymus and the identification, in mammalian species, of the two major subsets of lymphocytes and their functions.
The award recognises research of the highest standing in the field of experimental biomedicine and is open to researchers eight to fifteen years post PhD in the calendar year of nomination, except in the case of significant interruptions to a research career.
Funds were donated by Lady Tania Feldmann and Professor Sir Marc Feldmann AC FMedSci FAA FRS to establish this award over a 20 year period. The award will be awarded annually from 2015 and biennially from 2019 and is restricted to candidates who are normally resident in Australia and for research conducted mainly in Australia.
This award is open to nominations for candidates from all genders. The Australian Academy of Science encourages nominations of female candidates and of candidates from a broad geographical distribution.
Candidates may be put forward for more than one award. If a proposed candidate is already the recipient of an Academy early-career honorific award, they will not be eligible for nomination for another early-career or a mid-career honorific award. A mid-career honorific award recipient will also not be eligible for nomination for another mid-career honorific award. Fellows of the Academy are ineligible to be nominated for early and mid-career awards.
The medal is made and designed by the Royal Australian Mint, Canberra.
