2022 MMS Publication Prizes

Applications are now open for the 2022 round of the Melbourne Medical School Early Career Researcher (ECR) and Student Publication Prizes

Applications now open!

The Melbourne Medical School (MMS) Publication Prizes aim to recognise and reward high quality research produced by Early Career Researchers (ECRs) and graduate research students, and their ability to effectively communicate the significance and impact of their work to a diverse audience.

In 2022 the number of categories has increased to better reflect researcher diversity in our School, with a cash prize of $1500 for the highest ranked researcher available in each category.

Prize categories
  • Student (Clinician Scientist)
  • Student (Basic Scientist)
  • Early Career Researcher (Clinician Scientist)
  • Early Career Researcher (Basic Scientist)

Applicants are required to provide a lay summary of the significance and impact of research  which was published in 2021 or 2022.

Prize recipients will be invited to present their featured research in a 5 minute talk at the annual MMS Research Symposium on 3 November, with an additional prize to be awarded to the recipient whose presentation is voted as best communicating the significance and impact of their work.
