The objective of Researcher Support schemes is to provide opportunities to foster medical research and invest in the highest quality researchers and projects. These fellowships provide a vehicle for advanced training in health and medical research at the Royal Melbourne Hospital.

The RMH Margaret Henderson Women in Research Fellowship &

The RMH Fight Cancer Foundation Fay Duncan Women in Research Fellowship

While the benefits of research have accrued to all people, the opportunity to do research has been limited for women and yet female clinicians are highly represented in the healthcare workforce. To address the gender balance in research we launched this program to create opportunities for young female scientists and clinicians to undertake research as part of their careers. The $50,000 prize will enable the recipient to carry out further research in their area of expertise.
