CIHR congratulates the 2022 Canada Gairdner Award Laureates
Message from the President

April 5, 2022

The Gairdner Foundation has announced the recipients of the 2022 Canada Gairdner Awards.

The Canada Gairdner Awards recognize some of the world’s most significant biomedical and global health research and discoveries. This year we made history with four of seven awards going to Canadian researchers – the largest number of Canadians to receive these awards in the same year since they were created in 1957.

I wish to congratulate all of this year’s award recipients and give special recognition to the Canadian laureates.

These researchers have shown us the power of health research to improve lives and make the world a better place. By receiving these prestigious international awards, they are helping advance Canada’s reputation as a home for world-class science and inspiring the next generation of health researchers in Canada and abroad.


Michael J. Strong, MD, FRCP, FCAHS, FAAN
President, CIHR
