In May 2018, Dr. Laszlo Radvanyi was appointed President and Scientific Director of the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research (OICR). A scientist, professor and leader in the international biotech and pharma industry, he has worked in cancer immunology and immunotherapy for over 25 years. We asked him about what drew him to cancer research and immunology, the benefits of a good mentor, and his advice for students looking to discover their true path.

Radiation oncologist, researcher and health care leader at the University of Toronto and Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, Professor Kathy Han talks about what drew her to medicine, what compels her research, and what advice she has for current U of T students.

Dr. Brett Belchetz is the co-founder and CEO of Maple, a platform that connects patients with doctors for virtual health care. He is also a practicing emergency room physician at Scarborough Health Network. We asked him about what drew him to medicine, his unique path in health care and business and his rapidly expanding app.

The very first graduate of the Department of Medicine’s Eliot Philipson Clinician-Scientist Training Program, Dr. Chung-Wai Chow, explores how environmental air pollution affects cardiorespiratory health. We asked about her innovative approaches to studying respiratory illness, her recent findings and her advocacy to enhance lung disease intervention in Ontario.
