Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences’ Medal for Outstanding Female Researcher

Nominations are now open for the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences’ Medal for Outstanding Female Researcher.

The AAHMS Medal for Outstanding Female Researcher is awarded annually to a leading researcher who identifies as a woman and has made an exceptional impact in the field of health and medical sciences.

Launched in 2021, Professor Sharon Lewin AO FAHMS and Professor Georgina Long AO FAHMS are previous recipients of this prestigious award.


Nominations are welcome from all fields associated with furthering biomedical and health research, whether clinical or basic biomedical research. Nominees do not need to be a Fellow of the Academy.

The recipient will be a researcher who identifies as female who has made one or more exceptional and impactful contributions to health and medical research and has thus become a leading name in the Australian health and medical sciences.

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