Annual Report. 
School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine's PhD student, Neil Glassford has been awarded a $50,000 Avant Doctor-In-Training Scholarship for 2014-2015.

The Doctors in Training Research Scholarship Program was conceived in 2012 by the Doctors in Training Advisory Council in response to the difficulties young doctors face in securing research funding. Since beginning the program, Avant has awarded 22 scholarships with $800,000.

This year, eight outstanding young researchers received $300,000. The winners of four full-time scholarships of $50,000 and four part-time scholarships of $25,000 were honoured at a celebratory dinner in October. They were chosen from over 150 research projects.

Neil was recently involved in many presentations at the ANZICS annual scientific meeting in Melbourne this year where he also gave an invited oral presentation featuring work from his PhD.

Neil's PhD investigates contemporary evidence for fluid bolus therapy in the ICU.
