Awards: Dr. Paul Adams honoured for career-spanning work

Congratulations to Dr. Paul Adams, Professor in the Department of Medicine at Schulich Medicine & Dentistry, who received two honours this month for his exceptional career-spanning work in liver disease.

In mid-May he was honoured with the Marcel Simon Award, an international prize for excellence in the research of genetic hemochromatosis. Presented by the International BioIron Society every two years, it is the highest award in this field.

Dr. Adams has also been selected as the recipient of the 2019 CASL-CLF Visiting Professorship. This award is granted by the Canadian Association for the Study of the Liver and the Canadian Liver Foundation. The recipient is recognized as an outstanding individual in hepatology and an excellent communicator with an interest in clinical, basic science or translational liver research. 

As the 2019 recipient, Dr. Adams will deliver a “State of the Art” lecture in hepatology to at least four Canadian centres in Ontario, Quebec, the Maritimes and the Western Provinces. During the next year, he will also provide exceptional liver education to health care professionals, researchers and others involved in liver disease.

Dr. Adams’ leadership in hepatology makes him a highly worthy award winner. He will be presented with the Visiting Professorship at the upcoming Canadian Liver Meeting in Montreal, May 24-26.
