The 2009 winner of the Dr Lindsay E Nicolle Award was announced by Robert Kalina, Publisher of The Canadian Journal of Infectious Diseases & Medical Microbiology, at the recent International Congress of Chemotherapy and Infection, incorporating the AMMI Canada–CACMID annual conference, in Toronto, Ontario. The winner was Dr Abba Gumel for his paper “Mathematical assessment of Canada’s pandemic influenza preparedness plan” (Can J Inf Dis Med Microbiol 2008;19[2]:185–192).

This award is funded by Pulsus Group in honour of Dr Lindsay E Nicolle, the founding Editor-in-Chief of The Canadian Journal of Infectious Diseases & Medical Microbiology. It is given annually to an individual who made a significant contribution to the field of infectious disease, as demonstrated by the impact of original research published in The Canadian Journal of Infectious Diseases & Medical Microbiology and judged by the Editor-in-Chief and Associate Editors. The award consists of $1,000 and a Canadian work of art.

Robert Kalina also presented a cheque to Richard McCoy, Executive Director of AMMI Canada. The Canadian Journal of Infectious Diseases & Medical Microbiology is the official journal of AMMI Canada, and each year, Pulsus Group contributes a percentage of revenues derived from the Journal to the Society for use in future research.
