CIHR’s suite of prizes, the CIHR Gold Leaf Prizes, are among the highest honours that can be bestowed on an individual or team for excellence in health research and its translation into benefits for Canadians. Each CIHR Gold Leaf Prize has a value of $100,000.
These prizes cover achievements across all pillars of research (biomedical, clinical, health services and policy, and population and public health) and are awarded every two years.
CIHR is giving out four Gold Leaf Prizes for excellence in health research and its translation into benefits for Canadians:
It is thanks to the hard work and dedication of some of the brightest minds in our country that health research has known such impressive progress. Health research has helped prevent diseases and injuries, enabled medical professionals to deliver vital treatment and care, and has led to cures that save lives. Canadian health researchers have been responsible for creating indispensable new scientific knowledge and, through their efforts, have touched the lives of Canadians everywhere.
The CIHR Gold Leaf Prizes honour and celebrate Canadian discoveries as well as our best and brightest health researchers who are making a difference in the lives of Canadians.
