The Gairdner Foundation recognizes leading medical researchers from any country in the world through the Canada Gairdner International Awards which are recognized as among the most prestigous awards in biomedical science.
The Faculty of Medicine is proud to host of two Gairdner Laureates. This year, we welcome Dr. Alan D. Lopez (University of Melbourne, Australia), recipient of the 2018 John Dirks Canada Gairdner Global Health Award, and Dr. Lewis E. Kay (Hospital for Sick Children, Canada), recipient of the 2017 Canada Gairdner International Award.
The lectures will occur in Amphitheatre A (RGN 2005) at 2:00pm, followed by a reception in the Atrium afterwards. We hope to see you there!
