Date:3/18/2013

Ottawa (March 18, 2013) The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) today honoured five outstanding Canadian individuals and teams. They are the latest recipients of the CIHR-CMAJ Top Canadian Achievements in Health Research Awards, which celebrate Canadian health research excellence.

The winners were selected by a peer-review panel of Canadian and international experts, who looked for the discoveries and innovations that had the biggest impact on the health of people in this country and around the world.

The winners are:

  • Dr. Mark Wainberg, Director of the McGill University AIDS Centre, for his research on antiviral drug resistance and his work leading to the discovery of Lamivudine (3TC). Lamivudine is one of the world's most widely used drugs in the treatment of HIV.
  • Dr. Darren Warburton of the School of Kinesiology, Faculty of Education, University of British Columbia, for his contributions to the field of cardiovascular physiology research. His knowledge translation work helped increase the activity levels of Canadians, especially those in poor health.
