The Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research (MSFHR) and the Vancouver Coastal Research Institute are pleased to present a lecture by one of British Columbia’s most innovative scientists — a man who has bridged the gap between clinical research and new commercial treatments for disease.

Dr. Martin Gleave is the most recent recipient of the MSFHR Aubrey J. Tingle Prize, given to a British Columbia clinician scientist or scholar practitioner whose work in health research is internationally recognized and has significant impact on advancing clinical or health services and policy research — as well as its uptake — to improve health and the health system in BC and globally.

Please join Dr. Diane Finegood, MSFHR president and CEO, as she presents Dr. Gleave with his award. Dr. Gleave will also deliver a lecture and take questions from the audience.

Dr. Martin Gleave is executive director of the Vancouver Prostate Centre, chief executive officer of PC-TRIADD, and a distinguished professor in the department of urologic sciences at UBC. His major research focus involves the study of cellular and molecular mechanisms mediating progression of prostate cancer to its lethal stage of androgen independence, and use of this information to develop integrated multimodality therapies that specifically target these mechanisms. He is the scientific founder of OncoGenex Pharmaceuticals Inc.

The Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research harnesses the power of health research to improve the health of British Columbians and their health system. It does this by building BC’s capacity for world-class research by funding the best scientists; coordinating the sharing of health research resources across the province; and bringing people together for health research planning and action.
