The Paddi O’Hara Annual Lecture Award has been established by the Network of Networks (N2) and Paddi’s family to honour the life of Paddi O’Hara and her contributions to N2.

Paddi was a uniquely bright and engaging person with a passion for family, friends and for her tireless work in research ethics.  Despite facing her own personal challenges, she was always ready to lend her support to people and causes she held dear.  Her generosity as a teacher and colleague led to many fruitful collaborations over the years, including her work with N2.

Paddi led the implementation of the N2-Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) education program in Canada and served as the chair of the N2 Education Committee. Paddi’s leadership and dedication in bioethics course development were instrumental in creating the N2 CITI Canada program that is now used across Canada to support high quality ethical research practice.
This award was established in Paddi’s memory in an effort to continually shine a light on the importance of advancing ethical clinical research practice and education.  It will recognize an applicant addressing a topic in clinical research education or research ethics. The award will be granted at the N2 annual meeting to the successful applicant following a competitive application process conducted by N2.
