The prize was created in 2010 to honour Dr. Aubrey J. Tingle’s important contributions to BC health research as MSFHR’s founding president & CEO.

Dr. Tingle served as the Foundation’s CEO from 2001 to his retirement in 2008.

Founded in 2010, the annual prize has recognized some of BC’s foremost research stars across a wide range of health disciplines.
