Prizes and Awards

Our researchers, students and interns won numerous prizes and awards during the year for their work, their publications or their prolific careers. Here is a list of our 2017-2018 winners.

Recognition Gala of the Institute

The recognition gala of the Institute aims to highlight the exceptional work of people who distinguish themselves, by their skills and remarkable abilities within it.

Dr. Caroline Duchaine
Laureate of the Prix Recherche

Dr. Caroline Duchaine was awarded the Recherche prize for her exceptional work in aerobiology. In the video for her nomination, presented by Dr. Denis Richard, he pointed out her enthusiasm, her rigour and her sense of humour as well as her remarkable productivity and the major impact of her work in environmental health.

The 28th Scientific Days dedicated to research

The Research Centre held, on May 30 and 31, the 28th edition of the Scientific Days dedicated to research at Université Laval. This event is an opportunity for students and research professionals of the Centre to share their work to the community and this, in a convivial fashion. These are 83 presentations, including 30 oral ones and 53 in poster sessions that were made.

The Fonds de recherche du Québec – Santé (FRQS) Award for the best oral presentation was bestowed to Mickael Rosa, postdoctoral trainee with Dr. Patrick Mathieu, for his presentation entitled “Locus PALMD: Caractérisation d’un variant génétique causal du rétrécissement aortique calcifié.” During the closing banquet, in addition to prizes awarded for the best presentations, two research fellowships were given to students at the doctoral and master’s level by the IUCPQ Foundation, in partnership with Desjardins. These fellowships were handed to Emma Roy (master’s level) and Sarah Imhoff (doctoral level), two female students being qualified at the number one position in their category during the Centre’s annual fellowship competition.
