ASTH Scientific Medal

This annual award was instituted in 1996, and from 2002 - 2005 was sponsored by AstraZeneca (and known as the AstraZeneca Medal). From 2006, the award was again known as the ASTH Medal.


The award is intended for new individuals working actively in clinical and laboratory research in the field of thrombosis and haemostasis. The award is judged on the basis of abstracts submitted to the annual combined meeting of the ASTH and the HSANZ and ANZSBT. The award winner receives the ASTH Medal, a solid silver medallion and a prize of A$2000. In addition, there are two runner up awards of A$500 each.
