Canada Gairdner International Awards

The award recognizes outstanding biomedical scientists who have made original contributions to medicine with the goal of contributing, through research, to increased understanding of human biology and disease. The award recognizes an original, seminal contribution or discovery, rather than a lifetime of work.  Gairdner invites the scientific community to nominate qualified scientists from any branch of biomedicine.The evaluation of the contributions of the nominees depends heavily on the quality of information supplied. Therefore, nominations should be accurate, detailed, current, complete, and should include supporting letters reflecting the nominee's accomplishments.
