Charlotte Loppie, professor, and director of the Centre for Indigenous Research and Community-Led Engagement, was named a member of the Royal Society of Canada. Loppie’s work focuses primarily on Indigenous health inequities, Indigenous HIV/AIDS, and the social determinants of Indigenous health. She’s committed to patient-oriented research, which she reframes as something that is done by, for and with the people with lived experience who are the focus of the research.

 “I'm grateful that the Royal Society of Canada is acknowledging the contributions made by Indigenous peoples, knowledge systems and cultures,” says Loppie. She was also one of only three Canadian researchers awarded $100,000 research prizes this year from the Canadian Institutes of Health for patient-oriented research.
