About the awards
The SA Science Excellence and Innovation Awards showcases the critical importance of science, research and innovation to the development of industry and society as a whole.
The Awards provide a remarkable opportunity to recognise the work of inspiring Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM) leaders and teams working in research and education institutions, schools, industry and the community.
The Awards are a significant occasion in South Australia’s science calendar and are recognised as the premier science showcase event highlighting the diversity of scientific endeavour and research in this State.
The South Australian Scientist of the Year and the South Australian Innovator of the year will receive a prize to the value of $25,000.
The winners of the remaining categories will receive a prize to the value of $10,000 to use towards their career development.
All winners receive a trophy designed and produced by the Jam Factory and recognised as ambassadors of science at the state level.
My team and I work to improve outcomes for pregnant women and young babies using nutritional interventions. One of the most exciting findings in a little while has been the potential to reduce the risk of premature birth
