PHRI Scientist Harriette Van Spall received the 2022 Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR-ICRH) / Canadian Cardiovascular Society (CCS) Mid-Career Lecturer Award in Cardiovascular Sciences tonight at the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress in Ottawa.

Here is a small sample of Tweets on Van Spall’s presentation, “Obstacles are Opportunities to Soar.”



As noted by CIHR , Van Spall has a strong record as a champion of diversity, equity and inclusion, as well as mentorship of many diverse Canadian and international trainees who have successfully won grant funding and published in top medical journals under her supervision.

Her research is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, and Ontario’s Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. She has garnered more than $5 million in operating grants and awards, and has published research in high-impact medical journals, including JAMA, Lancet, European Heart Journal, Circulation, and JACC.
