Ritchie Centre Award for Translational Research

This award will be presented to the researcher whose fundamental discovery offers the potential to lead to changes in perinatal clinical practice, or for work that progresses such a discovery closer to clinical application.

The PSANZ Ritchie Centre Award may be awarded to a researcher at any stage of their career. The recipient of the PSANZ Ritchie Centre Award will receive $1,000 towards the cost of attending a subsequent PSANZ Annual Congress.

Nominations for consideration for the award will not be requested. A short list of nominees will be generated by the Conference Local Organising Committee, based on review of submitted abstracts. Presentations of short-listed abstracts (posters and/or oral presentations according to programming) will be judged by members of the Congress Awards Judging Panel. The PSANZ Ritchie Centre Award will be presented along with other awards from the Society at the Closing Session of the Annual Congress.

The mechanism for administration of the award will be the same as that for the PSANZ New Investigator Awards.
