UHN's new podcast, "Behind the Breakthrough," has received two nominations – "Outstanding Science Series" and "Outstanding Branded Series" – from the 2020 Canadian Podcast Awards.
An 11-episode podcast series that ran weekly through the fall of 2019, "Behind the Breakthrough" features one-on-one conversations with award-winning UHN researchers about their pioneering work. It also delves into the personal side of their lives, revealing their approach to everything from leadership and failure, to what it takes to be successful, and the motivations behind why they do what they do.
The series is a joint production of UHN Research and Public Affairs & Communications (PAC).
"We believe that these nominations are a recognition of both the amazing research happening at UHN, as well as the passion that our researchers and clinician scientists have to improve the lives of our patients and deliver on our promise of a healthier world," says Dr. Brad Wouters, UHN EVP of Science and Research.
The inaugural season of "Behind the Breakthrough" features renowned UHN scientists searching for better treatments and cures for everything from Alzheimer's disease and blindness, to the use of stem cells to build healthy hearts.
The series has more than 5,000 downloads and the audience continues to grow.
"We're pleased our stories are resonating with people," says Gillian Howard, Vice President of UHN PAC.
"The podcast format gives us a new and innovative way for a wider audience to meet our people, hear about their work and understand that science and scientists are smart, committed and often inspirational."
