The CFAS Mathias Gysler Award

Please note that the CFAS will not be awarding and grants or awards in 2020.

The Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society (CFAS) would like to honor Dr. Mathias Gysler’s memory and legacy with the creation of an award in his name. Dr. Gysler was a passionate advocate for his patients, including those from marginalized communities, who sought reproductive care, and that he was exceptional in his efforts to improve access to successful treatment for these often overlooked individuals. We also understand that Dr. Gysler took pride in his European heritage and greatly enjoyed attending the annual meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE).

Description of Award

As such, the CFAS established ‘The Mathias Gysler Award’ which recognizes CFAS members who have demonstrated exceptional progress in enhancing access to treatment or the potential for success of treatment in groups of individuals facing challenges. The recipient will be awarded a plaque and up to $5,000.00 to be used to attend the annual ESHRE meeting. It is our hope that this award will celebrate and commemorate Dr. Gysler’s important contributions to his patients and to the reproductive care of all Canadians.
