Nominations Open For the 2020 Aubrey J. Tingle Prize

18 December 2019

Do you have a BC health research colleague that deserves to be recognized for their research and impact? Nominate them today for the 2020 Aubrey J. Tingle Prize.

MSFHR’s Aubrey J. Tingle Prize is awarded annually to a BC-based clinician scientist whose work in health research is internationally recognized and has had a significant impact on advancing research – and its implementation – to improve health and the health system in BC and globally. Since 2015, we have presented this award in partnership with LifeSciencesBC as part of their annual awards program.

Previous recipients include clinician scientists whose research has redefined patient care and disease prevention, in areas ranging from women’s health to sepsis and HIV/AIDs.

Nominate a BC-based clinician scientist who:

  • Is actively engaged in clinical or health services and policy research.
  • Is internationally recognized for their research and its translation to improve health and the health system.
  • Goes above and beyond to mentor more junior investigators.

Nominations, consisting of two letters of support plus the nominee’s CV and publication list, will be reviewed by a volunteer panel of researchers with expertise in practice-relevant health and health system research. Nomination deadline: 5 p.m.  PST, Friday, February 7, 2020. 

The 2020 Aubrey J. Tingle Prize will be presented April 2, 2020, at the 22nd Annual LifeSciences BC Awards celebration.

The Aubrey J. Tingle Prize was created to honour the important role that Dr. Tingle played as founding president & CEO of MSFHR from 2001 to his retirement in 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.
