Queensland University of Technology -
Twelve bright young researchers from across Queensland will
be recognised tonight with Young Tall Poppy Science Awards at the Science
Celebration, during National Science Week. One of these winners will be named
the Queensland Tall Poppy of the Year on the night.
These winners showcase the breadth of research being carried
out across the state. From managing securing the future of our coastal
ecosystems to understanding the workings of our brains, and improving surgical
outcomes for all of us. Queenslanders will benefit from the breakthroughs being
made by these Tall Poppies of Science in the years to come.
“Many Young Tall Poppies go on to achieve even
greater things and to become inspiring leaders in their field,” she said. “They
also become role models by working with the education and community sectors to
encourage greater engagement in science.” said AIPS General Manager, Ms Camille
