Established in 1998, and bearing the likeness of one of Australia’s greatest scientists, The Florey Medal is one of Australia’s most esteemed awards in the health sciences. It is awarded biennially to an Australian researcher for significant lifetime achievements in biomedical science and / or human health advancement.

In addition to the silver medal, the award carries a prize of $50,000 thanks to the generous support of CSL Limited.

Since 2014, AIPS and CSL have conferred a second category of award, now called the CSL Florey Next Generation Award, which recognises a current PhD candidate who has demonstrated outstanding capability, creativity and potential in the biomedical sciences and/or health and medical research.

It has been developed to encourage and support promising health researchers early in their careers, and to complement The Florey Medal in recognising and promoting scientific and intellectual excellence in Australia.

Both awards are named in honour of the Australian Nobel Prize-winning scientist, Sir Howard Florey, who developed penicillin.
