2010 Investigator Awards

Dr. Robert McMaster, Interim VP Research, VCH, and Executive Director, VCHRI, is pleased to announce the winners of VCHRI's 2010 Clinician Scientist Awards, funded by VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation (through their Adopt a Young Scientist Program) and Lions Gate Hospital Foundation respectively.

These awards are aimed at clinician scientists at the beginning of their research careers. These are individuals both clinically practicing and conducting research at one of the following sites: VGH, UBC Hospital, GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre or Lions Gate Hospital, who want to reduce their clinical practice commitments in order to continue developing their research careers as independent investigators.
