The recipients of the Awards will be determined by a committee, co-chaired by the Chair of the Department of Physiology at the University of Toronto and the Director of the Centre for Mathematical Medicine at the Fields Institute.
First preference will be given to trainees affiliated with the Centre for Mathematical Medicine at the Fields Institute and supervised or co-supervised by a faculty member in the Department of Physiology. If no such trainee exists in a given year, second preference is for one Award to be awarded to a trainee in the Department of Physiology, and the second to be awarded to a trainee affiliated with the Centre for Mathematical Medicine at the Fields Institute and supervised or co-supervised by a faculty member in any department at the Faculty of Medicine.
