Fundamental Science (Oral and Poster)

Summary: Awarded to fundamental science trainees (undergraduate, graduate, postdoctoral fellows) presenting research projects which are considered the most deserving, based on content, scientific methodology, and presentation.  


Dr. Brian W. Goodacre Memorial Award for Interventional Radiology

*The prize will support the cost of presenting the winning research project at a scientific meeting such as ‘Society of Interventional Radiology.’

Summary: Awarded to a radiology resident with the highest cumulative score on his/her Interventional Radiology presentation, which is based on excellence in scientific designclear presentation of datavalidity of discussion, and clarity of oral presentation. Interventional Radiology topics could include vascular and non-vascular topics, or advanced biopsy techniques.


Dr. Peter Poon Memorial Research Award

*It is anticipated that the funds awarded will be used to off-set the costs for statistical data analysis, laboratory or imaging time, or raw materials used in such endeavors.

Summary: These awards are for radiology resident(s) who have started a project but are still acquiring data or have a hypothesis generated and experimental design confirmed. The aim of the award is to encourage original hypothesis-driven research in which Residents are the principal investigator or co-investigator. This is a research-in-progress award. The hypothesis, experimental design and data collection methodology should be clearly stated, but no data needs be presented.     


Dr. Robert Wallace Boyd Award

Summary: Awarded to resident(s) formost promising hypothesis-driven research proposal in the field of imaging/intervention. Data is not required at time of submission to be eligible for this award.   


Dr. Gordon E. Trueman Award

Summary: Awarded to those resident(s) and fellow(s) completed projects which are considered the most deserving, based on content, scientific methodology, and presentation.  Evidence-based conclusions should be presented.   


Burrard Medical Imaging Clinical Fellow Research Award

Summary: Scientific presentations of hypothesis focused research by UBC Radiology affiliated clinical fellow(s).
