Awards

The IMS Robert Greenblatt Prizes

Robert B. Greenblatt, co-founder and first President of the International Menopause Society, originally conceived the idea of awarding prizes to the two junior researchers who present the best abstracts in the field of the menopause.
There are two prizes each of £2500, for the best papers presented, in either basic research or clinical work.
 

  • Award winners must be under 40 years of age, or in training, by the first day of the Congress.
  • They must have been the sole or principal researcher in the paper presented.
  • Entrants for the Greenblatt prizes must submit their work in abstract form and tick the “Greenblatt prize” checkbox.

 


Winning the Greenblatt prize has been one of the highlights in my academic career. As a young investigator you wonder if you are on the right track, but being nominated and winning, gives you the motivation to keep on going.

The IMS Henry Burger Prize

This Prize of £2500, was named to mark the great contribution that Professor Henry Burger has made to the field of menopause and will now be given to the investigator who is judged as having published the most significant contribution(s) to the field of menopause in basic science or clinical studies in the previous five years of this World Congress, i.e. 2013-2018.
A demonstration of how the research has managed to influence better clinical practice and evidence of measurable impact factors as well as the citations indices of published papers which might influence clinical practice is required.
 

  • The publications must have been in a peer-reviewed journal, in print or e-pub, in the public domain, during the qualifying period.
  • Judging is undertaken by the Scientific Prize Sub-Committee and the prize winner will give a short presentation of his/her work at the World Congress in Vancouver at a special session.
  • Submission criteria, applications and self nominations are invited for this Prize to be received no later than 1st February 2018.
    •

I was deeply honored to be awarded such a prestigious award. This award is critically important in promoting awareness of and supporting high quality research in the area of menopause research and practice
