Rising Stars

Rising Stars Nominations

The Science on the Swan Organising Committee recognises the importance of promoting local research and practice amongst students, early and mid career researchers and clinical trainees.

We know there are many passionate, highly skilled scientists and health practitioners in Western Australia working across the disciplinary spectrum to deliver outcomes in relation to chronic disease management, brain development and mental health and Aboriginal health and wellbeing across the State.

The organising committee invites abstracts from all health and medical scientists across the spectrum of the 2018 Science on the Swan research themes, and invite abstract submissions for oral presentations during the conference sessions.

Presentations will be judged by non-WA senior researchers in Perth to speak during the conference, and an inaugural Rising Star Award will be presented at the conference dinner.

Three Rising star awards of $1,000 will be awarded based on the submitted abstract, supporting statement and CV.
