Prof Philip Sambrook Award

The Professor Philip Sambrook Award is presented annually to an outstanding early career researcher and is announced at the annual Australia & New Zealand Bone & Mineral Conference.  Successful applicants must be passionate about bone research, results driven and committed to giving back to the community.

Professor Sambrook was the inaugural Medical Director of Osteoporosis Australia who helped build the organisation from its inception. He was past-president of the Australian & New Zealand Bone & Mineral Society (ANZBMS), and a strong advocate in all areas of research and public awareness regarding bone health and osteoporosis in Australia. His commitment and passion have greatly benefitted the Australian nation and will continue to influence us for years to come.
