The 2012 Hamilton Health Sciences' Research Gala - A Roaring Affair was a huge success.
The event, which honours Global Research and Innovation at Hamilton Health Sciences and the people behind the research, took guests back in time to The Roaring Twenties - the era of the Charleston, the birth of Art Deco, the Jazz Age and adventures on The Boardwalk.

2012 Research Honouree - Dr. Michael Boyle
Dr. Boyle has devoted his career to studying developmental influences on child health and behaviour over the early life-course.
In the early 1980’s, he and the late Dr. Dan Offord initiated the Ontario Child Health Study (OCHS). This landmark project was the first large-scale observational study of children in their family environments. The OCHS raised concern about the plight of children growing up in disadvantaged circumstances, identifying the need for improved child mental health services, for innovative prevention programs and for concerted efforts to increase the opportunities denied to disadvantaged children.
Dr. Boyle currently holds the Canada Research Chair in the Social Determinants of Child Health. In 2009, he received the CIHR Michael Smith Prize in Health Research for Health Services and Systems and Population Health Research for his tireless efforts to untangle the complex relationship between children's health and their socio-economic environment.
