The prestigious Royal Mach-Gaensslen Prize for Mental Health Research is awarded each year to an outstanding mental health researcher, enabling future exploration and discovery. This national prize provides $100,000 in funding to star mid-career Canadian researchers with a demonstrated track record in research; excellence in scientific rigor, innovative thinking, imagination and originality; and a clear ability to work in partnership with other disciplines and/or research teams external to the institution with which they are affiliated. The award was jointly established in 2015 by the University of Ottawa Institute of Mental Health Research at The Royal and the Mach-Gaensslen Foundation of Canada.
