Lap-Chee Tsui Publication Award (2014) – Application Deadline: October 1, 2014

On behalf of the CIHR Institute of Genetics, I am pleased to announce the launch of the Lap-Chee Tsui Publication Award (2014) competition:
CIHR-IG established this award to honour one of Canada's greatest researchers, Dr. Lap-Chee Tsui, whose discovery of the gene for cystic fibrosis was a milestone in human genetic disease research. Each year this award recognizes outstanding health research carried out by trainees in all fields and disciplines working within the IG's mandate.

I would also like to take the opportunity to recognize the work of last year's recipients for their outstanding contribution to health research:
