Sid Stacey, director of administration for the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences, has received the 2014 Innovation Award from the University of Toronto's Society of Graduates, Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation. Stacey was honoured at an event this month for his leadership in launching the Ontario Cancer Research Ethics Board (OCREB).

The new provincial institution provides a consistent scientific and ethical review of multicenter cancer trials and has significantly reduced the time frame to open such trials; lessened the costs and workload pressures on individual research ethics boards; and enhanced human subject protection and access to novel therapies. Stacey was the OCREB's inaugural executive director.
