UOttawa’s Faculty of Medicine awards 58 clinical research chairs to top clinician-scientists

Children

The Faculty of Medicine has awarded 58 clinical research chairs to top clinician-scientists in a five-year, $40 million investment to drive clinical research excellence and enhance health and patient care.

The University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine Clinical Research Chairs span four categories — Distinguished, Tier 1, Tier 2 and Junior –and represent a wide range of departments and medical specializations (see below for a full list of recipients).

The Clinical Research Chairs Program has allowed the Faculty to foster some of our top-performing clinician-scientists across the Faculty. It has been received with great enthusiasm.”

Dr. Jocelyn Côté, vice-dean of research at the Faculty of Medicine

The uOttawa Faculty of Medicine Clinical Research Chairs Program was launched in 2010, aiming to support excellence in clinical research with an ultimate view to improve health and/or patient care. The first iteration of the program included two categories of awards, Tier 1 and Tier 2, mirroring the Canada Research Chair program. The categories provide $200,000 and $100,000 per year respectively for five years, with the uOttawa Faculty of Medicine contributing 30%, and the respective clinical department 70%, of these sums.

In 2015 the program grew from five to nine Tier 1 chairs and from seven to 13 Tier 2 chairs, and expanded to create 12 Junior Clinical Research Chairs, the latter providing $80,000 annually to newly recruited faculty members in each of the Faculty’s 12 clinical departments.

This year’s competition was launched in early 2020 for new and renewal applications, along with the creation of a new Distinguished Clinical Research Chair tier. The selection committee received an unprecedented number of outstanding applications.

“The Faculty continues to uphold its dedication to the emerging and continuing success of our outstanding clinical researchers,” Dr. Côté said.
