2nd Annual Science Policy Award of Excellence - Youth Category

CSPC is proud to present its 2nd Annual Science Policy Awards of Excellence—Youth Category which follows in the spirit of our 2013 Young Generation Award.

This award recognizes a young individual (student, postdoctoral fellow, researcher, entrepreneur, etc.) under the age of 35 who developed an innovative and compelling evidence-based policy that will make a positive difference to Canadians.

Proposals were to be connected to one or more of the themes for the 2016 CSPC Conference. This award is designed not only to highlight innovative, evidence-driven policy ideas, but also to encourage innovative young people who may not
currently be studying, or working on, public policy to develop and share their policy ideas.

The Selection Committee was so impressed by the quality of the submissions and the dedication of the applicants that they wanted to share these innovative evidence based policy proposals with the CSPC community.

Please join us in congratulating our 2016 winner Amani Saini for her proposal
“Using Genetic Tests to Stop Adverse Drug Reactions”
