CSL Next Generation Florey Award

The CSL Next Generation Florey Award is a new award conferred to 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 and medical researchers early in their careers, and to complement the Florey Medal which is awarded biennially to an Australian biomedical researcher for significant achievements in biomedical science or human health advancement, and is supported by CSL Limited.

The CSL Next Generation Florey Award includes a $20,000 prize, and two runner-up prizes of $2500 each, thanks to the generosity of CSL Limited.
