Prizes and Awards

About

In uOttawa’s bid to increase its research intensity and international recognition, research and teaching prizes and awards are becoming more and more important.  Awards such as these promote a culture of research excellence and raises the visibility and profile of the institution and researchers on the national and international scene.  Gaining this recognition strengthens the appeal of uOttawa as a first-class institution for study and research and encourages careers in research/academia.

The Faculty of Medicine Research Office staff provides assistance to investigators, research teams and educators in identifying relevant awards and prizes and preparing applications, as well as coordinating nominations with key stakeholders within and external to the University.
