The Cleveland Young Investigator Award

The Cleveland Young Investigator prize is awarded to the best platform presentation at Melbourne Health Research Week. It recognises the research achievements of a young investigator undertaking either a Higher Degree or Postgraduate Training.  The award commemorates the relationship between the Royal Melbourne Hospital and the Cleveland Hospitals during the Second World War, when the Hospital was serviced by the United States Army and the successful candidate is listed on the Cleveland Young Investigators Award Honour Board located on the Ground Floor of the RMH.

Young Investigators are encouraged to apply for this Award and should indicate their intention on the abstract submission form.
