13 December 2016
The Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research (MSFHR) is pleased to open nominations for the 2017 Aubrey J. Tingle Prize.
The prize is awarded annually to a British Columbia clinician scientist whose work in health research is internationally recognized and has had a significant impact on advancing research in his or her field — as well as the uptake of this evidence — to improve health and the health system in BC and globally.
For the third consecutive year MSFHR is proud to present the Aubrey J. Tingle Prize in partnership with LifeSciences BC. The prize will be presented April 19, 2017, as part of the 19th Annual LifeSciences BC Awards.
The deadline for nominations is Tuesday, January 31, 2017.
The nominations will be reviewed by a volunteer panel of researchers with expertise in practice-relevant health and health system research.
The Aubrey J. Tingle Prize was created to honour the important role that Dr. Tingle played as founding president & CEO of the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research from 2001 to his retirement in June 2008. A pediatrician and immunologist, Dr. Tingle has maintained a lifelong interest in the role of viruses in disease, with particular interest in rubella arthritis and juvenile diabetes.
