The Young Florey Medal was an award given to an Australian biomedical researcher for significant early career achievements in biomedical science and/or human health advancement for research conducted primarily in Australia. In addition to the bronze medal, the award carried a prize of $25,000 due to the generous support of CSL Limited. The announcement was made at the annual AAMRI dinner at parliament House in Canberra on October 27, 2014.
The award has now evolved into a biennially award called the CSL Next Generation Florey Award.
