SRF Postdoctoral Prize

The Postdoctoral Scientist Prize is aimed at postdoctoral scientists who are within five years of having obtained their PhD.


The 2019 SRF Post-Doctoral Prize was presented to Jorge Lopez-Tello at Fertility 2020 for his presentation:

“Aberrant Igf2-H19 expression in the placental endocrine zone increases the susceptibility of the mother
to poor metabolic health”

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 / New Zealand.
