The CIHR Gold Leaf Prizes are among the highest honours that can be bestowed on an individual or team for excellence in health research and its translation into benefits for Canadians.
Each CIHR Gold Leaf Prize has a value of $100,000.
These prizes cover achievements across all pillars of research (biomedical, clinical, health services and policy, and population and public health) and are awarded every two years. CIHR is giving out four Gold Leaf Prizes for excellence in health research and its translation into benefits for Canadians.
The winners of the CIHR Gold Leaf Prizes will be selected by the Gold Ribbon Panel in February 2019. The public announcement of the winners and medal presentations will occur at an awards ceremony at a later date.
You may contact the CIHR Contact Center (firstname.lastname@example.org) for questions on how to nominate a researcher.
