Outstanding Young Investigator Award


This award was established by the British Pharmacological Society and the Australasian Society for Clinical and Experimental Pharmacologists and Toxicologists (ASCEPT) to provide a significant career-enhancing opportunity by:

  • Offering a three-week visit to Australia for post-PhD, early-career researchers.
  • Supporting participants’ accommodation, international and domestic travel, and subsistence during this time (up to £5,000)


From the abstracts accepted by the organisers of Pharmacology 2016, a post-PhD early career researcher will be identified, whose career in pharmacology, including clinical pharmacology, is judged to benefit from exposure to overseas research activity.


The nominee must be an author on an abstract submitted to Pharmacology 2016, and subsequently accepted by the organizers. The nominee must be a member of the British Pharmacological Society with a PhD qualification.

There are no restrictions on nationality, place of residence, or work of nominees.


Self-nomination only. Authors of accepted absracts will be contacted by the Society and advised of the application process.
