Applications are open for the 2022 MedTech Actuator Menzies Scholarships

Calling all Science Entrepreneurs! The 2022 MedTech Actuator Menzies Scholarships are now open.

Each year, MedTech Actuator and the Menzies Foundation award ten high-potential health, medical and biotechnology researchers with the MedTech Actuator Menzies Scholarships, supporting them to develop a career that fuses science, research, and entrepreneurship.
