The Louis and Artur Lucian Award was established through a bequest to McGill University under the will of the late Olga Leibovici to honour the donor's two brothers, and was conferred for the first time in 1978. The Award is designed to honour outstanding research in the field of circulatory diseases by a scientific investigator or group of investigators whose contribution to knowledge in this field is deemed worthy of special recognition. As per the terms of the bequest, the work of the nominee must be current. The Louis and Artur Lucian Award consists of a $70,000 CDN prize to the recipient. It is hoped that through this Award, collaborative research in the field of circulatory diseases can be established between McGill and research centres elsewhere in Canada, the United States and other countries of the world.
The successful recipient is invited to spend a minimum of a one- to two-week period of time at McGill University to give a formal Lucian Lecture, to have interchanges with members of the McGill community, and possibly to undertake a research collaboration with McGill investigators in the field of circulatory diseases. Prospective recipients should be nominated on the form provided. This form, together with the supporting materials, should be returned to Dr. James Martin, Chair, the Louis and Artur Lucian Award Committee. The Award Committee recognizes no geographical limitations, and nominations are invited without distinction as to gender or nationality. Preference will be given to work done in the recent past.
