Judah Denburg and Warren Foster have joined 19 other Faculty of Health Sciences faculty members as fellows of the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences (CAHS).

As well, he is the founding scientific director and CEO of the Allergy, Genes & Environment Network (AllerGen). He is a professor of medicine and chief of service of the Division of Clinical Immunology & Allergy.

Foster is a leading scientist with expertise in reproductive and developmental biology and toxicology.

His contributions have been recognized through several awards from the Ontario Women’s Health Council and for teaching as well as leadership positions for professional societies such as the Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society and the Society of Toxicology.
