Building Canada's Future through Research
Since 1967, the Killam Program has recognized and celebrated outstanding scholars and supported their innovative work in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, health sciences, engineering, and studies linking any of these disciplines. The Canada Council for the Arts administers and promotes this program which includes two components, the Killam Prizes and the Killam Research Fellowships.
Winning the Killam Prize was an enormous honour for me and my team—it reflects how together we can answer questions and solve problems at the intersection of engineering and medicine, with the ultimate goal of improving human health.

The Killam Fellowship gave me the unique opportunity to focus on a type of research that required deep commitment and devotion, which would have been impossible with the multi-tasking of a regular academic life. I am grateful to the Canada Council for supporting, through me, research with Indigenous language partners.
