Event Details

Dr. Lewis Kay

Lewis KayMolecular Genetics & Chemistry, University of Toronto,  2017 Gairdner International Award recipient

New techniques of medical imaging reveal details about proteins, the building blocks of life. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy reveals not only what proteins inside cells look like, but how they change over time and how they can sometimes stop working properly, leading to a disease. This information can help create targeted drugs to help stop, in particular, neurodegenerative diseases like ALS.

Dr. Kay is a Gairdner International Award winner, a very prestigious recognition born in Canada but recognized around the world and often predicting future Nobel Prizes.

Royal Canadian Institute for Science (RCIScience) & Gairdner Foundation

The Royal Canadian Institute for Science (RCIScience) is a platform for public engagement with leading scientists to foster and expand science dialogue in communities. Our platform online, in formal talks, informal discussions and in print, provides access to leading science for all Canadians.

The Gairdner Foundation was established in 1957 with the main goal of recognizing and rewarding international excellence in fundamental research that impacts human health. Annually, seven awards are given: five Canada Gairdner International Awards for biomedical research, one John Dirks Canada Gairdner Global Health Award, specifically for impact on global health issues, and one Canada Gairdner Wightman Award, reserved for a Canadian.
