A researcher in McMaster University's Faculty of Health Sciences has been recognized by the Royal Society of Canada (RSC) for his scholarly and scientific accomplishments.
Guillaume Paré is a member of the incoming class of the RSC's College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists.
Paré is an associate professor in both the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine and the Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence, and Impact. He holds the Canada Research Chair in Genetic and Molecular Epidemiology.
A world-leading physician-scientist in the area of genetic and molecular epidemiology of cardiovascular disease, his research has advanced knowledge of the genetic causes of heart attack and stroke. He is establishing new ways of identifying high-risk patients, modifiable risk factors, and preventive therapies.
Pare is one of two members of the McMaster community recognized by the RSC. Gianluigi Botton, a professor in the Faculty of Engineering, was elected as a fellow to the RSC's Academy of Science.
"Professor Botton and Professor Paré join a distinguished cohort of colleagues from across the country who have been recognized for significant contributions within their fields," said McMaster President Patrick Deane. "I congratulate them both on this prestigious acknowledgement of their accomplishments."
Paré, along with 51 other new members of the RSC's College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists, will be welcomed into the RSC in November in Halifax, N.S.
