ANNUAL CANADA GAIRDNER AWARDS GALA: The annual Canada Gairdner Awards are given out each October at a black tie gala at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. The 2016 Gala took place on October 27, 2016. The room was filled with members of the health care, academic, private and public sectors who all have the opportunity to hear from the awardees as they’re presented with their award and cheque. This event is often touted as the networking event of the year given the calibre of guests. 

Thank you to all of the organizations who purchased a table. We will be posting videos and photos from the Gala on our website soon. 

OUTREACH PROGRAMS: Our National and Student Outreach Programs are currently taking place and have our Canada Gairdner Awardees visit 22 universities across Canada where they speak with students to inspire the next generation of scientist’s along with faculty. We also host symposia each year based on the themes of our current awardee’s research. The symposia take place in Toronto and the schedule can be accessed here.

Gairdner Foundation has developed integral partnerships with these universities who assist with planning. If your university is interested in getting involved please contact Sommer Wedlock at sommer@gairdner.org to learn more.
