About the Aubrey J. Tingle Prize

The Aubrey J. Tingle Prize is awarded annually to a British Columbia-based clinician scientist whose work in health research is internationally recognized and has had a significant impact on advancing research in their field — as well as the uptake of this evidence — to improve health and the health system in BC and globally.

The prize was created to honour Dr. Aubrey J. Tingle’s important contributions to BC health research as founding President & CEO of the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research (now known as Michael Smith Health Research BC). A pediatrician and an immunologist, Dr. Tingle has maintained a lifelong interest in the role of viruses in disease, with particular interest in rubella, arthritis, and the possible viral causes of juvenile diabetes.
