Canadian excellence, Global recognition: Canada’s 2018 winners of major international research awards profiles the innovative work of Canadian researchers.
Whether they work in the field of mathematics and physics, health and medicine, or the social sciences and humanities, the 17 Canadian researchers and artists profiled in this publication have all been recognized at home and around the world for their impressive accomplishments.
Their achievements run the gamut — from advancing theoretical questions in the pure sciences… to identifying how genomics can fight disease and protect biodiversity… to developing new means of expression through images, words and sound in the fine arts.
Some are rising stars, earning prestigious fellowships to help them build on early promise. Others are in the midst of thriving careers with a distinguished list of credits to their names. Still others are late-career winners, receiving accolades for bodies of work that have transformed how we understand the world and each other.
Whatever their discipline, and wherever they fall on the career spectrum, these members of the “class of 2018” are well-deserving recipients of the honours bestowed on them. We salute all the winners for their personal achievements, for advancing collective knowledge and for heightening Canada’s reputation on the global stage.
