Metcalf Prizes: supporting promising researchers

Each year the Foundation awards two $60,000 Metcalf Prizes for Stem Cell Research to two up-and-coming scientists to boost their career to the next level.

The winners are selected by a jury of research leaders for their scientific excellence, proven leadership ability and the potential to have a continuing influence on stem cell research in Australia.

The Metcalf Prizes for Stem Cell Research recognise and honour the exceptional contribution made to stem cell research by the late Professor Donald Metcalf. Over his 50-year career, Don helped transform cancer treatment and transplantation medicine, and paved the way for potential stem cell therapy in the treatment of many other conditions.
