Young Investigator Award (YIA)

Young Investigator Award (YIA)

The Young Investigator Award (YIA) recognises and promotes the outstanding research undertaken by young investigators in the area of women's and children's health. It also enables young researchers to present their research in a way that is easily understood by the general population.

This highly prized award is an ideal forum for promoting media interest in the excellent and varied research undertaken at the hosting institutions by high quality investigators researching women's and children's health issues.

The Women's and Children's Hospital Foundation is proud to be the major sponsor of the Young Investigator Award - an initiative of the Women's and Children's Health Network. The University of Adelaide, Flinders University, University of South Australia, Women's and Children's Health Research Institute and South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute are also partners in the award.

The previous Research Showcase (Semi-finals Event) was held on the morning of Tuesday 22 September 2015 in the Queen Victoria Lecture Theatre at the Women's and Children's Hospital.

Finalists presented their research at the Finals Event, hosted on the evening of Tuesday 20 October 2015 at the prestigious South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI).

Following scientific judging, each of the three finalists receives $2,000. The Young Investigator Award winner, judged by a media panel, receives $5,000 and each finalist is also eligible for the People's Choice Award of $1,000 judged by the audience at the Finals Event.

The Young Investigator Award is awarded annually and applications are called for mid year via the WCH Foundation website.
