The Diabetes Junior Investigator Award was created to support research and education initiatives for physicians (endocrinologists, internists, family physicians, etc.) at an early stage of their career who are involved in the management of diabetes and related diseases.
This initiative was developed in collaboration with the Canadian Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism and AstraZeneca Canada. Applicants must have graduated from a training program less than five years ago, or be within five years of a first full-time faculty appointment.
The finalists will present their research projects at a symposium at the CDA/CSEM Professional Conference on Friday, October 24, 2014, from 7:30 to 10:00 PM.
This award places special emphasis on supporting research and/or educational initiatives that have the potential to improve diabetes care and/or enhance self-management and/or support patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Note that all submissions must be made through the website www.endocrineawards.com.
