Call for Nominations for the 2022 CIHR-ICRH/CCS Mid-Career Lecturer Award in Cardiovascular Sciences

The CIHR Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health (CIHR-ICRH) and the Canadian Cardiovascular Society (CCS) have partnered on the 2022 CIHR-ICRH/CCS Mid-Career Lecturer Award in Cardiovascular Sciences. The establishment of this annual Mid-Career Lecturer Award in Cardiovascular Sciences by the CIHR-ICRH and CCS is to recognize an individual's outstanding contribution to the advancement of cardiovascular sciences in Canada at the mid-point of their career. The award will be presented to the selected candidate annually at the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress, 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 cardiovascular sciences in Canada and/or internationally. The individual may have conducted work in any one of a number of cardiovascular 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 CCS 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 Cardiovascular Congress and to deliver a lecture on a research topic relevant to a broad research audience.

Please complete the 2022 nomination form [ PDF (168 KB) ] and submit it to Dr. Helen Coe by e-mail at by 4:00 pm MST on May 27, 2022.

Please note that you are entitled to submit only one nomination form per Mid-Career Lecturer Award competition.

  1. Impact of nominee’s research on and advancement of cardiovascular sciences both in Canada and internationally (e.g. tool or a guideline) over the last ten years;
  2. Relevance/application/impact of the nominee’s research to a clinical setting (i.e. “research to practice to policy”);
  3. Demonstrated strength and reputation of the nominee in the field of cardiovascular sciences in Canada and internationally; and
  4. Impact of the nominee’s mentorship and training environment on the development of young scientists and other highly qualified personnel in Canada and internationally.
