Applications are invited for the Dr Roneal Naidu Memorial Prize that has been established by a contribution to the University by Professor Ravi Naidu, in memory of his late son Roneal who was an MBBS 2002 graduate.
The prize is to be awarded annually by the University and will be awarded in recognition of research of demonstrable impact in a surgical discipline. Postgraduate students currently enrolled in the Adelaide Medical School whose work has a focus on Surgical Research are eligible to apply.
The prize will be awarded for the most outstanding peer reviewed scientific paper published (or accepted for publication) within the past two years in this field and in which the applicant was a senior or corresponding author. Special consideration will be given to work that has, or is likely to have, high clinical impact.
The winner will receive an inscribed medal and a cash prize of $1,700.
Applicants should submit an electronic copy of the paper they wish to have considered together with a covering letter indicating the role they played in the research contained in the paper. The letter should be countersigned by the principal supervisor.
Applications should be forwarded electronically in one PDF file to email@example.com by COB Friday 21 October 2016.
