2023 Fully-funded CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholars Programme
The CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholars program provides
funding and support to help scholars build their research networks and
develop essential skills to become leaders. Global Scholars are
researchers within five years of their first academic appointment from anywhere
in the world.
Since 2012, the organization has been led by Alan Bernstein, a
distinguished scientist and visionary leader. Dr Bernstein is known for his
research on cancer and for launching Canada’s federal funding agency for health
research, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. During the COVID-19
pandemic, he was appointed to Canada’s Vaccine Task Force to advise the
Government of Canada on COVID-19 vaccine research, testing, and deployment.
