Congratulations to Patrick O'Donoghue

Schulich Medicine & Dentistry Assistant Professor Patrick O’Donoghue, PhD, is Western University’s newest Canada Research Chair in Chemical Biology.

The announcement was made this week by the Honourable Ed Holder, Minister of State (Science & Technology) as part of a $118 million investment aimed at supporting top-tier talent at Canadian post-secondary institutions.

“Our government’s Canada Research Chairs Program develops, attracts and retains top researcher talent in Canada whose research, in turn, creates long-term social and economic benefits while training the next generation of students and researchers in Canada,” said Holder.

O’Donoghue joined the Department of Biochemistry at Schulich Medicine & Dentistry in 2013.
