Since 2014, the ANZSBT Council has been awarding a prize sponsored by the National Blood Authority (NBA) for the best oral or poster abstract with a transfusion focus presented by a young investigator. In 2017 and 2018, the National Blood Authority also sponsored an award for the best poster/oral presentation on Haemovigilance as judged by the ANZSBT Council at the conference.
Both awards will be offered again in 2019, and the NBA encourages all professionals within the blood sector to submit their research for either award, providing they meet the eligibility criteria. For the Young Investigator award, applicants must be 35 years or less on the last day of the meeting to be eligible.
The Blood 2019 call for abstracts opens on 28th March 2019. Further information can be found on the conference website: http://www.blood2019.com/ and information about previous award recipients can be found on the NBA’s website here.
