Distinguished Lecturer Award Series
At a Glance
The Distinguished Lecturer Award (DLA) Series honours outstanding investigators from each of the Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health (ICRH) mandate areas within any of the four CIHR themes.
Award recipients demonstrate significant impact and advancement in their field of research, both nationally and internationally, as well as relevance of their research to a clinical setting. In addition to showing strength and reputation in their field in Canada and worldwide, award recipients have demonstrated impact on the development of young scientists and highly qualified personnel through mentorship and training.
In collaboration with our partners, this award provides a $5,000 honorarium and coverage of all expenses (e.g., travel, accommodations, registration fee, etc.) to attend a national Canadian conference to deliver a keynote lecture on a research topic relevant to a broad research audience.
