Call for Nominations for the 2022 CIHR-ICRH/CSATVB Mid-Career Excellence Award in Blood and Blood Vessel Research

The CIHR Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health (CIHR-ICRH) and the  Canadian Society of Atherosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology (CSATVB) have partnered on the 2022 CIHR-ICRH/CSATVB Mid-Career Excellence Award in Blood and Blood Vessel Research. The establishment of this annual Mid-Career Lecturer Award in Blood and Blood Vessels by the CIHR-ICRH and CSATVB is to recognize an individual's outstanding contribution to the advancement of blood and blood vessels in Canada at the mid-point of their career. The award will be presented to the selected candidate annually at the Canadian Vascular and Lipid Summit, where the recipient will give a lecture as part of the scientific program.

The selected candidate will be an outstanding mid-career investigator (at the time of application, has assumed his/her independent research position 5-15 years ago) who has conducted the majority of his/her research in Canada and has contributed significantly to the advancement of blood and blood vessel sciences in Canada and/or internationally. The individual may have conducted work in any one of a number of blood science 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 successful candidate’s research should also be aligned with the interests of CSATVB and CIHR-ICRH.

The award consists of a $5,000 honorarium in addition to coverage of all expenses (e.g., travel, accommodations, registration fee, etc.) for the recipient to attend the 2022 Canadian Vascular and Lipid Summit and to deliver a lecture on a research topic relevant to a broad research audience.
