HRI researcher awarded prestigious prize

Awards and Achievements

Jun Yuan, post-doctoral scientist with our Translational Research Group, was recently awarded the Ralph Reader Basic Science Prize at the recent Cardiology Society of Australia and New Zealand (CSANZ) 2015 annual meeting in Melbourne. 

The prize, which Jun describes as both “a great honour” and “a big achievement”, is awarded by a panel of judges based on the quality of research. The meeting was attended by more than 2,300 cardiologists, technologists, researchers, trainees, surgeons, physicians, nurses and students.

“The Ralph Reader Prize is one of the most prestigious awards in cardiovascular research in Australasia”, says HRI Translational Research Group Leader, Associate Professor Martin Ng. 

“The HRI was exceptionally well represented among the award finalists this year, having two out of three finalists for the Basic Science Prize (Jun Yuan and Monica Lam) and having one of three finalists for the Clinical Research Prize (Stacey Robertson)”, he says. 

“All our candidates presented their work very well and strongly represented the high quality work of our Institute.”
