  • Categories

    Two prizes will be awarded at each congress, one to the best clinical paper and one to the best scientific paper presented at the Annual Congress of the British Transplantation Society.

  • Members

    Candidates for the prize must be members of the Society prior to abstract submission, and should be under the age of 40 on the first day of the Annual Congress for which the prize is being considered.

  • Exception

    In exceptional circumstances people outside the age range but still in training would be considered with a suitable letter of support from their head of department, for example if they had undergone a period of interruption in their training.

  • United Kingdom

    The work must be presented by the candidate and must be original and innovative and have been performed largely or entirely within the United Kingdom. The candidate must have contributed significantly to the work. Submission must be made with the consent of all co-authors, who in doing so, provide confirmation that the rules of the submission have been fulfilled.

  • First Author

    Candidates for the prize will be limited to the first author of the submitted paper. In the rare event that the first author cannot present the paper, it must be withdrawn from the competition although the work may be presented by another author in another section of the meeting.

    Persons wishing to be considered for the prize must indicate this in their abstract submission.

  • Past Winners

    Past winners of the Medawar Medal cannot apply for the award.

  • Exclusivity

    Work submitted to the Medawar session must not have been presented at another national or international meeting prior to Congress.

  • Roy Calne Award

    A piece of work which has competed for the Roy Calne Award may be entered for the Medawar Prize. However, the same piece of work cannot win both prizes.

  • Judging Panel

    The judging panel will be chaired by the President of the Society and will usually consist of the President and 8 members of the society, each of whom will act as rapporteur for one of the papers submitted. The members of the panel will be chosen by the executive so as to provide a broad area of expertise. No member of the judging panel may have a direct interest in any of the papers in the competition. If the President has such an interest, he or she will nominate a Member of the Council to act as Chairman. The decision of the panel will be final.

  • The Prize

    The prize will consist of a medal and a cheque for £500 presented during the meeting at which the paper is given.
