Led by the Melbourne Medical School, these grants recognise the outstanding achievements of early and mid-career women in academia.

The grant will allow Dr Abdelhamid to advance her research program and expanding her team, dedicating more time to student supervision and mentoring, while also building international connections and pursuing key leadership roles thanks to the grant.

Dr See will use this grant to investigate how safe and effective angiotensin II is for treating critically ill patients with vasodilatory shock (a critical manifestation of cardiovascular failure). The findings of this research program have the potential to fundamentally change how vasodilatory shock is treated worldwide, with a focus on improving outcomes for patients, caregivers, and clinicians.
