Anita Unruh Prize
In 2016, the Anita Unruh Prize was established by Patrick McGrath in honour of his wife Anita Unruh, a former associate dean and professor. The Prize rewards excellence in trainee research on ovarian cancer and aims to encourage trainees to establish careers in research related to this disease. Offered biennially, this is a peer-reviewed prize for a published paper that both focuses on ovarian cancer and has a trainee as first author. Applications from trainees from all levels and disciplines will be considered.
The Unruh Prize is comprised of $5,000 and includes registration and travel for the Canadian Conference on Ovarian Cancer Research, where the prize will be presented. The next conference is tentatively scheduled for May 2018. The applicants must be willing to have their information publicized and plan to attend the conference.
