SRF Postdoctoral Prize
The Postdoctoral Scientist Prize is aimed at postdoctoral scientists who are within five years of having obtained their PhD.
The 2017 Postdoctoral Scientist Prize was awarded to Avi Lerner (Imperial College London, UK) for his presentation:
“Investigation of the transcriptome in granulosa-lutein cells from PCOS patients implicates gene networks involved in cholesterol metabolism”
To be considered for the award, postdoctoral scientists must be the first and presenting author of an abstract submitted for the Fertility meetings.
Submitted abstracts are reviewed by an independent panel and a maximum of three abstracts are short listed for oral presentation during the Postdoctoral Scientist Prize Session at Fertility. The prize is awarded based on a combination of criteria which include content, presentation, delivery and discussion of the work. The winner of the prize will be invited to present their talk at the Society for Reproductive Biology Congress in Australia the following year.
To be considered for the Postdoctoral Scientist Prize, qualifying scientists must tick the relevant box when submitting their abstract for Fertility.
