The Coast Association Tow Research Awards were initiated due to the vision of Dr Wally Tow (pictured above), a visitor from Singapore in the early 1970s, who continues to support the meeting.

The Awards provide the only common forum on the Randwick hospitals campus for junior investigators to present their basic and clinical research, and are intended to foster collaborations between clinical investigators and research scientists who are located at the many research institutes and hospitals around the Randwick hospitals campus.

On Tow Research Day junior clinical investigators and basic researchers present their work and compete for prizes in five Divisions: Open Senior; Open Junior; Clinical; Case Presentations; and two Poster Prizes. A prize for the most highly ranked Nurse/Midwife in any division is also awarded.

The Tow Awards are traditionally sponsored by the various hospitals and foundations around the Randwick campus that have naming rights for the prize divisions, as well as corporate sponsors.
