The CIHR Gold Leaf Prizes honour and celebrate Canadian discoveries as well as our best and brightest health researchers who are making a difference in the lives of Canadians.
Each CIHR Gold Leaf Prize has a value of $100,000.
These prizes cover achievements across all pillars of health research and are awarded every two years.
Prize winners were selected on the recommendation of a Gold Ribbon Panel comprised of individuals with a broad array of expertise across all of CIHR’s health research theme areas.
