Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences’ Jian Zhou Medal

Nominations are now open for the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences’ Jian Zhou Medal.

The Jian Zhou Medal is awarded annually to a rising star of Australian health and medical science – an individual who is making a significant impact in translational health and medical science, primarily working in Australia.


Nominations are welcome from all fields associated with furthering biomedical and health research, whether clinical, public health or basic biomedical research, but must have a clear translational focus.

The recipient will be a postdoctoral researcher within 15 years of achieving their PhD, inclusive (or equivalent first research higher degree) at the time of nomination.

Consideration will be given to individuals whose career has been interrupted, delayed or otherwise constrained through reasons including, but not limited to illness, child bearing, child caring or other caring responsibilities. Other disruptions resulting from professional development or training, such as clinical load, would not be considered under this definition.

The recipient must be normally resident in Australia at the time of nomination and the majority of their research must have been initiated or led from Australia (i.e. more than 50%).

Nominations for individuals undertaking clinical work alongside their research, women candidates and those representing the full diversity of health and medical sciences in Australia are encouraged.
