Cardiometabolic Research Award for Young Investigators

CCS/HSRLCE/BI-Lilly Cardiometabolic Research Award

The Canadian Cardiovascular Society, HSRLCE, and the BI-Lilly alliance created an award entitled “CCS/HSRLCE/BI-Lilly-Cardiometabolic Research Award.” This Award is intended for Canadian clinical residents (PGY 4-6), or PhDs and MDs who are within five years of their first faculty appointment at a Canadian academic institution for a research project on any topic related to cardiometabolic disease.

We received 18 submissions: 2 from Alberta, 3 from British Columbia, 1 from Nova Scotia, 8 from Ontario and 4 from Quebec.

Two finalists were selected to present their research project at a session held during the virtual CCC on October 22nd. Dr. Piché was awarded first place prize ($25,000) and Dr. Quimet was awarded second place prize ($20,000).

  1. Dr. Marie-Eve Piché “Effects of Exercise and lifestyle intervention on subclinical cardiac function in adults with metabolic syndrome: a 16-week randomized study” – University of Ottawa
  2. Dr. Mireille Ouimet “Role of Lipophagy in Macrophage Polarization” – Laval University

Congratulations to the winners!
