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 at all International Menopause Congresses to the two junior investigators who present the best papers in the field of menopause, from both basic science and clinical points of view. There are two prizes, each of £2,000, one of which will be for clinical work and the other for basic scientific 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 investigator in the study reported. Entrants for the Greenblatt prizes must submit their work in abstract form by the deadline, 29th March 2016. The Scientific Sub-Committee, appointed by the IMS President to act as the jury, will review the abstracts and select a shortlist of six candidates. These final candidates will each be asked to submit a full-length manuscript of their work and will then present their papers to the jury at a special session in Prague on Wednesday 29th September,11-12.30pm in Forum Hall.  The final vote will be taken and the names of the award winners will be announced at the President’s dinner.

  • Award winners must be under 40 years of age, or in training, by the first day of the Congress.
