white blood cells) play in preventing and reversing sepsis a potentially fatal condition in which the blood becomes infected by harmful bacteria. His findings will be of vital importance as the number of antibiotic-resistant bacteria grows and we need to find alternatives for treating infection. His research is also providing insights into the immunological effects of stroke, cancer, diabetes and other immune-related diseases. He hopes to collaborate with physicians and the private sector to translate his findings into treatments to improve health outcomes for patients.

"I am honoured to receive this award, which represents the work of many exceptionally talented research colleagues and students," Kubes said. "It also represents the vision of Joan Snyder, who as a philanthropist invested in our institute and helped fund the cutting-edge imaging technology that has placed the Snyder Institute and the university among the very best. I would also like to thank CIHR, the Canada Foundation for Innovation, and Alberta Innovates − Health Solutions for their outstanding support, as well as a number of health foundations including the Heart and Stroke Foundation and Crohn's Colitis Foundation of Canada."

"Paul Kubes' research is a wonderful example of the value of basic scientists working with clinicians," said Dr. Tom Feasby, dean of the University of Calgary's Faculty of Medicine. "Some of Dr. Kubes' key advances in understanding sepsis arose from observations made at the bedside in the critical care unit. And ultimately, the impact of his discoveries will be felt in those same clinical settings by the patients affected by infections."

The CIHR's Canadian Researcher of the Year Prize (formerly the Michael Smith Prize in Health Research) is the CIHR's most prestigious prize in its annual Canadian Health Research Awards. One prize is awarded annually and consists of a medal and a research grant of $500,000 given as $100,000/year for five y
