The Gordon F. Mutch Young Investigator Award in Diabetes Research

The Gordon F. Mutch Young Investigator Award in Diabetes Research of the Canadian Nutrition Society (CNS) is given for research investigating the role of lifestyle in the prevention and/or treatment of type 2 diabetes. Both the applicant and his/her supervisor must be a member in good standing of the CNS-SCN. The Award is given for trainee research (a graduate student, post-degree dietetic intern, or medical resident) investigating the role of lifestyle (diet and/or exercise) on the prevention or treatment of type 2 diabetes.

Trainees must enter the Nestle Student competition at the time of abstract submission to the annual CNS conference. The award winner is the highest ranked abstract in the area of type 2 diabetes research. They will present their work either as an oral presentation or poster presentation at the annual conference.

A committee, appointed by the President and Awards Chair, will make the selection for the recipient of the Gordon F. Mutch Young Investigator Award in Diabetes Research. Persons willing to serve on the selection committee may contact the Awards Chair. The Award consists of a monetary award and a plaque, and will be presented at the CNS Annual Conference.
