ANZSB is excited to announce our travel award winners to attend WCB 2018 in Dublin, Ireland in July as well as the Publication of the Year Award for 2017.
For all awards, the executive committee appointed reviewers that were free from conflicts of interest (e.g. supervisors who had a post-doc or PhD student submit an application in a particular award category were ruled ineligible to review that award). Reviewers were asked to rank the applicants based upon 1) the significance and importance of the research, 2) the rigour and innovation of the methods, and 3) how well the research was reported.
ANZSB would like to thank all researchers who submitted an award application for each of the categories. If you didn't submit an application this time or were unlucky enough to miss out, then don't forget that travel awards will be offered again for ABC11 later in the year.
Congratulations goes to...
