These awards (maximum $1500) provide successful individuals the opportunity to learn more about osteoporosis, advance existing research skills in osteoporosis and/or present their research at a scientific meeting. It is open to undergraduate, graduate, postgraduate trainees and junior faculty members (where junior is defined as less than 5 years in their first academic appointment). The awards aim to build on Dr. Timothy Murray’s impressive legacy of teaching, research and patient care by recognizing, supporting and encouraging future leaders in bone health.

Osteoporosis Canada’s research program supports trainees by providing scholarships to support clinical, translational and health-outcomes research that focuses on the high fracture-risk population and more specifically, preventing fractures and their negative health consequences.
While such research primarily involves human participants, there may be a rare occasion where a proposal may involve the use of an animal model that may provide important information about preventing fractures or supporting fracture healing. In such a scenario, the research project would undergo a rigorous ethical review at the host institution, a requirement for all research projects, and be conducted in accordance with institutional policy that is aligned with provincial animal protection legislation and with the Canadian Council on Animal Care. This decision is reviewed on an annual basis.
