There are many opportunities for award nominations that recognise and celebrate individual and team achievements in research, innovation and impact. Prestigious Awards and Prizes improve the profile of a researcher and are a valuable addition to an academic track record.
"I am very humbled to be acknowledged and to be in the company of many great women in science. I was fortunate to have excellent female mentors in my career. In particular, Professor Mel Ziman, who believed in me, shared her wisdom and provided me with the opportunity to grow. I feel privileged that I can now pass on that knowledge and experience to the next generation and be a mentor for young academics early in their careers. Awards such as these are an important recognition of the breadth of expertise and the contributions of women in biomedical sciences."
"Publications, citation metrics and successful grant funding are critical to successful research track record but being named WA Scientist of the Year 2019 brought a new understanding of how much this recognition leverages new opportunities and research success. The award has opened up so many state and national collaborations and is a prominent highlight on track record and capability statements for grant applications. I encourage all researchers to seek and apply for awards and prizes as a significant component of your overall research advancement strategy."
