About this event

Inspired by Dr. Raymond Hakim, the vision behind the McGill Clinical Innovation Competition (CLIC) is to inspire members of the McGill Faculty of Medicine community to conceive and develop promising ideas that will have a direct and positive impact on Canadian or global health care.

Now in its third year, we are grateful to our generous donors for sponsoring the three prizes below, which consist of both a monetary award and credits to support the development of proof of concept and preparation for commercialization or implementation:

  • The Hakim Family Innovation Prize recognizes ideas, new processes or devices in health care with potential to have a tangible and meaningful impact on the patients entrusted to our care.
  • The Marika Zelenka Roy Innovation Prize, launched in partnership with the Montreal General Hospital Foundation, highlights the innovation providing the best solution to an unmet clinical need for the care of a patient and the highest likelihood of success in being translated.
  • The MI4 Innovation Prize, sponsored by the McGill Interdisciplinary Initiative in Infection and Immunity, aims to support innovative solutions that focus on infectious and immune threats to human health.
