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 Distinguished Lecturer/CSATVB Scientific Excellence Award in Blood and Blood Vessel Sciences to recognize an individual's outstanding contribution to the advancement of blood and/or blood vessel sciences both in Canada and internationally. The award will be presented to the selected candidate at the 2022 Canadian Lipid and Vascular Summit, where the recipient will deliver a lecture as part of the scientific program. The Canadian Lipid and Vascular Summit is a joint scientific symposium of the CSATVB and the Canadian Lipoprotein Conference.
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 blood and/or blood vessel sciences. Nominees may have conducted work in any one of a number of blood and/or blood vessel disciplines and within any of the four CIHR research theme areas: Biomedical; Clinical; Health Systems and Services; and, Social, Cultural, Environmental and Population Health. A nominated candidate's research should also be in a field of interest to the CSATVB and attendees of the Canadian Lipid and Vascular Summit.
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 Lipid and Vascular Summit and to deliver a lecture on a research topic relevant to a broad research audience.
These Trainee Awards recognize the scientific work of talented trainees. CSATVB Young Investigator Travel Subsidy Awards will consist of up to $500/trainee. The award is meant to offset registration/travel/accommodation costs to attend the 2019 CSTAVB annual meeting at the Canadian Lipid and Vascular Summit in Banff (October 3-6, 2019).
Travel Subsidy Awards will be presented to the top CSATVB trainee abstracts as ranked by the CSATVB Annual Meeting Committee.
