Emerging Leaders Prize for Adolescent Mental Health researchers

Last updated



The Medical Research Foundation’s Emerging Leaders Prize application process is now closed. No further submissions for 2018 will be accepted

The Medical Research Foundation’s Emerging Leaders Prize is an annual award to recognise outstanding researchers in the early stages of independent research who have already had an impact in their field and have demonstrated their potential to be the research leaders of the future.

Prizes will be awarded annually with a focus on a different field of scientific research highlighted each year. The Emerging Leaders prizes are intended to have a high impact on the winners. The prize is not a project grant and winners will be able to use the prize money flexibly to support their research and their professional research career development.

The research supported in the 2018 prize competition is possible thanks to the generous support of the late Mrs Johanne Menage.
