Congratulations to Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology researcher Dr Kate Hodgson who was awarded the 2022 Dr Hubert Sydney Jacobs Memorial Scholarship based on the 2022 paper published in the New England Journal of Medicine entitled “Nasal high-flow during neonatal endotracheal intubation”.

The Dr Hubert Sydney Jacobs Memorial Scholarship is named in honour of Dr Hubert Sydney Jacobs (1892 - 1950), a Medical Officer and Captain in WWI and a respected Obstetrician and Gynaecologist who was an ‘Honorary’ at the Royal Women’s Hospital in the 1920’s, and whose generous bequest funds the award. The Scholarship was established to promote the careers of promising students and is to be awarded annually to the graduate research student with the best peer-reviewed research paper published in the previous 12 months. The goal is to encourage graduate research students to publish their research and present their findings at scientific meetings.
