Two researchers of the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine who are making a mark globally have been named University Scholars.
Dawn Bowdish and Guillaume Paré are among four McMaster University faculty appointed with the honour intended to recognize those in mid-career who have already distinguished themselves as international scholars.
Bowdish is an associate professor of pathology and molecular medicine and holds a Canada Research Chair in Aging and Immunity. Paré, also an associate professor pathology and molecular medicine, holds a Canada Research Chair in Genetic and Molecular Epidemiology.
Recipients of the University Scholar Prize are considered global leaders in a number of diverse research areas and academic disciplines. The award is also meant to recognize the complete scholar who has also demonstrated excellence in teaching and learning as well as a demonstrated history of community service.
Each scholar will receive $15,000 each year of the four-year award provided by McMaster Provost and Vice President (Academic) David Farrar and the applicable faculty dean.
This year's other McMaster recipients are Prashant Mhaskar from the Faculty of Engineering and Daniel Machiela from the Faculty of Social Sciences. A University Scholar from the School of Business will be announced in May.
