UHN is proud to announce the renewal of Canada Research Chairs for Drs. Elise Stanley (Tier 1 Chair in Molecular Brain Science) and Tony Lam (Tier 2 Chair in Obesity). Also, a new Tier 2 Chair was announced for Dr. Leonardo Salmena in the area of Signal Transduction and Gene Regulation in Cancer.

The Canada Research Chair program provides funding that supplements researcher salaries and helps subsidize research costs, such as graduate student salaries. These stable funds serve to attract and retain the world's most accomplished and promising scientists. Canada Research Chair holders are expected to improve our depth of knowledge and quality of life, strengthen Canada's international competitiveness, and help train the next generation of highly skilled people through supervision, teaching and collaboration.
