Celebrating Our Gairdners
The Canada Gairdner Awards celebrate the world’s best biomedical and global health researchers through seven annual awards. The Gairdner Foundation was established in 1957 with the main goal of recognizing and rewarding international excellence in fundamental research that impacts human health.
The Parliamentary Health Research Caucus will host and celebrate Gairdner Award Recipients in a virtual panel event that treats Parliamentarians and special guests to presentations from selected Gairdner Awardees.
