Christine Lee Haemophilia Journal Award

Established in 2012 by the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) and Wiley, the Christine Lee Young Researcher Award (former Christine Lee Haemophilia Journal Award) is given in recognition to a top young researcher (graduate student or postdoctoral fellow) who is the primary author and presenter of a highly rated submitted abstract in any discipline involving hemophilia or other related bleeding disorder.

The selection committee – including the Haemophilia Journal’s editor and WFH representatives on the Haemophilia Editorial Board – will choose the best presented abstract at the WFH 2020 World Congress.

A prize of ₤3,000 for the best free paper presentation and a prize of ₤1,000 for the best poster presentation, along with a three-year online personal subscription to Haemophilia, is provided to the recipients of both awards.

The young researcher must be under the age of 40 at the time the article is submitted. If there are multiple authors, the lead author and presenter must be under the age of 40 at the time the article is submitted.


Abstract to the World

This year, special attention will be reserved for young researchers under the age of 40 who are citizens from outside of Malaysia, in a low-income, lower-middle income or upper-middle income economy country (as defined by the World Bank). See the list of eligible countries here.

The WFH is pleased to offer $1,000 USD grants to each of the five highest scored abstracts. Abstracts will be reviewed by the Abstract Review Committee, which is composed of three experts for each category. In order to qualify, you must be registered to attend and have submitted an abstract for the WFH 2020 World Congress in Malaysia.
