I am pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Mark Crowther as chair of the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine, effective October 1, 2014

Dr. Crowther joined McMaster in 1999 and is currently a professor in the Departments of Pathology and Molecular Medicine, Medicine and Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics. He is currently the Vice-President of Research at St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton and Chief of the Hamilton Regional Laboratory Medicine Program.

His research interests include exploring methods of improving the way that we currently use anticoagulant drugs. Foci include the use of vitamin K to treat warfarin-associated coagulopathy, the use of low molecular weight heparin in patients with renal failure, and studies and systematic reviews of various interventions and observations in hematology and thromboembolism.

His clinical activities focus on the care of patients with thromboembolic disorders, the management of complications of treatments for thromboembolic disorders and other hematological conditions.

He has presented more than 400 invited talks, has published in more than 360 peer-reviewed publications, has spoken nationally and internationally and is the author of more than 60 textbook chapters and other invited reviews. He is the senior editor of Evidence Based Hematology and holds both a Research Chair, Endowed by Leo Pharma, and a Career Investigator Award from the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario.

Crowther succeeds Fiona Smaill, who held the position of Chair for two consecutive terms. In that time, Dr. Smaill respectfully earned the admiration of the faculty and the University as a whole.

We welcome Dr. Crowther to his new role as Chair, Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine.
