Thursday, January 21, 2010

Dr. Patrick Luke of the Department of Surgery has been selected as the 2010 recipient for the American Urological Association's prestigious Gold Cystoscope Award.

This award is presented annually to a urologist distinguished by outstanding contributions to the profession within thirteen years of completing residency training. Luke was selected based on his outstanding basic science and clinical research contributions in the field of renal transplantation.

He is only the second Canadian to receive this award since it was established in 1977. Dr. John Denstedt, Chair, Department of Surgery, is the other Canadian recipient, who was honoured with the award in 1998.
