Request a Grant Writer

Award of $50,000 to a Canada physician or scientist in recognition of extraordinary contributions to the field of cancer research and treatment. The award is intended for a Canadian citizen with an academic appointment who has made a transformational, internationally-recognized contribution to the fight against cancer, with an emphasis on researchers whose achievements span the spectrum of health research, from the laboratory to clinical care, to health systems and public policy.

Among the criteria that will be considered is a distinguished record of translating scientific discoveries into clinical applications, forging partnerships with scientists and others to foster cancer research or to implement discoveries, and cultivating future leaders in the field.

The prize is awarded with the expectation that the recipient will continue to make outstanding contributions in the future, since this is not a lifetime achievement award.
