IWK Research Awards

Research Services offers two annual awards which are presented during S.T.A.R.S. (Special Time to Appreciate and Recognize Staff) week.

The Robert Bortolussi Mentorship Award was established to recognize and reward the dedication, endurance and commitment to mentoring. Nominees must demonstrate extraordinary commitment to the Mission, Vision and Core Values of the Health Centre through personal activity, collaboration and/or support of others.

The IWK Research Award was  created to recognize an individual, research group, team or organization who distinguishes him/herself among his/her colleagues by demonstrating innovation, creativity and outstanding achievement in research activities conducted and/or supported at the IWK.
