Call for nominations for the 2021 CIHR-ICRH/CSS Distinguished Lecturer Award in Sleep Sciences
The CIHR Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health (CIHR-ICRH) and the Canadian Sleep Society (CSS) have partnered on the 2021 CIHR-ICRH/CSS Distinguished Lecturer Award in Sleep Sciences to recognize an individual's outstanding contribution to the advancement of sleep sciences both in Canada and internationally. The award will be presented to the selected candidate at the October 2021 Canadian Sleep Society Virtual Conference, where the recipient will deliver a lecture as part of the scientific program.
The selected candidate will be an outstanding scientist who has conducted the majority of their research in Canada and has contributed significantly to the advancement of sleep sciences. Nominees may have conducted work in any one of a number of sleep disciplines and within any of the four CIHR research theme areas: Biomedical; Clinical; Health Systems and Services; and, Social, Cultural, Environmental and Population Health. The selected candidate’s research topic should be relevant to the Canadian Sleep Society Virtual Conference attendees, where the award will be presented.
The award consists of a $5,000 honorarium in addition to coverage of all expenses (e.g. registration fee) for the recipient to attend the 2021 Canadian Sleep Society Virtual Conference and to deliver a lecture on a research topic relevant to a broad research audience.
