The Inaugural Suzanne Cory Medal recognises outstanding research in the biological sciences, initially excluding the applied medical sciences. It is a career award that honours the contributions made to science by Professor Suzanne Cory AC FAA FRS who, as a molecular biologist, has made major contributions to understanding the genetic causes of cancer. The Medal and a lecture will be presented at a dinner in the Awardees State capital. 

NB: Candidates may be put forward for more than one award. 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.



The 2021 award round is the inaugural award round for this medal.
