The foundation of the Canada Gairdner award program is the recognition of scientific excellence globally.
Gairdner embraces diverse perspectives in research. Special emphasis is given to sourcing competitive nominations of members of groups underrepresented in scientific awards and in the research community at large, including but not limited to women, visible minorities, Indigenous persons and individuals with disabilities. We invite the community to join us in this effort by nominating outstanding scientists of diverse backgrounds for the Canada Gairdner Awards.
