Dr. Martin Gleave, executive director of the Vancouver Prostate Centre, is the winner of the fourth annual Aubrey J. Tingle Prize. Created in honour of Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research’s founding president and CEO, this award is given to a British Columbia researcher whose work in health research is internationally recognized and has significant impact on advancing clinical or health services and policy research.

“Martin has contributed significantly to the understanding and treatment of prostate cancer, a disease that affects thousands of Canadian men every year,” says Dr. Diane Finegood, MSFHR president and CEO. “He has studied how prostate cancer grows on a cellular and molecular level and has used this research to develop therapies that specifically target these mechanisms, improving outcomes for men with the disease,” adds Finegood.
