Welcome to the National Stem Cell Foundation of Australia’s bulletin on stem cell medicine and research in Australia.
Do you know any up-and-coming stem cell researchers?
There is a little over one week remaining for them to apply for the 2017 Metcalf Prizes for Stem Cell Research. The prizes, worth $50,000 each, are awarded to one male and one female mid-career researcher.
Applications close 11.59pm on Friday 4 August 2017. Read on for more details.
In this newsletter, we also catch up with last year’s Metcalf Prize winners James Chong and Tracy Heng.
The Metcalf Prizes are part of our mission to support stem cell research in Australia. It’s been a delight to see the careers of scientists we’ve funded in the past go from strength to strength.
