CHS Annual Research Abstract Awards

CHS Annual Research Abstract Awards

This program offers research awards to hematology trainees in Canada in the categories of:

  • PhD and Postdoctoral
  • Residents and Fellows

The John H. Crookston Award* is presented each year by the Canadian Hematology Society for the best paper given by a resident.

The CHS annual Abstract Research Awards are promoted by distribution of information packages to all Program Directors, through the CHS membership email distribution, in The Microenvironment, the CHS newsletter, and through direct mailings.

These awards are announced in December each year and presented at the CHS Annual Meeting and Awards dinner.

*This award is named for the late John Hamill Crookston (1922-1987) who was the Laboratory Hematologist-in-Chief at Toronto General Hospital and a Professor of Medicine and Pathology at the University of Toronto from 1957 until his death in 1987.
