The Labelle Lectureship Committee of McMaster University is seeking nominations for a promising junior health services researcher — a rising star in the field — to give the 2022-23 Labelle Lecture.   Given that many early career researchers have been disproportionally affected by the pandemic and the scarcity of awards for promising junior researchers, the Committee decided to increase the stipend offered to the Lecturer to $2000 (as it did in 2020 and 2021).   The Labelle Lecturer can be from any country and should have these characteristics: • Is early in his/her/their career development (assistant or early associate level), and shows tremendous promise based on early research accomplishments; • Is conducting research on a topic that challenges existing methods or accepted ideas in health research; • Is capable of delivering a high-quality lecture that will be of interest to a multidisciplinary audience of health researchers and decision-makers; • Can spend one to two days at McMaster to present a one-hour lecture, followed by a reception; meet with faculty and students and attend a dinner.   Please submit nominations to Emmanuel Guindon, Chair of the Labelle Lectureship Committee, at, and include the following information regarding the nominee: • Full name, current position, link to a faculty page, and, when possible, an updated CV. • A brief paragraph describing the topic on which you believe the nominee could present the Labelle Lecture.   Recent Labelle Lecturers include Jay Shaw, Tiffany Green, Jennifer Walker, Ruth Lavergne, Dean Spears, Antoine Boivin, Katy Kozhimannil, Onil Bhattacharyya, David Stuckler, Irfan Dhalla and Michael Law.   The Committee will begin reviewing nominations on July 6, 2022.
