Nominations open for 2018 Aubrey J. Tingle Prize
Do you know a BC-based clinician scientist who has had a significant impact on advancing research in their field, and implementing that research? Nominate them for the 2018 Aubrey J. Tingle Prize.
The 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. The deadline for nominations is Wednesday, January 31, 2018.
2017 recipient Dr. Jim Russell, an internationally recognized leader in the fields of critical care and severe infection, was delighted to receive the 2017 award. “It’s validation of all your hard work, and amazing to get the recognition from peers and an institution that I respect hugely,” said Russell. “But of course it would not have been possible without the tremendous support of the Centre for Heart Lung Innovation and Providence Health Care Research Institute teams at St. Paul's Hospital - a truly world class research centre.”
For the fourth consecutive year MSFHR is proud to present the Aubrey J. Tingle Prize in partnership with LifeSciences BC. The prize will be presented April 19, 2018, as part of the 20th Annual LifeSciences BC Awards.
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 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.
