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.
The CSL Florey Next Generation Award includes a $20,000 prize, and two runner-up prizes of $2,500 each, thanks to the generosity of CSL Limited.
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.
