Dr. Wayne Carman [BSc ’72, MD ’75, MSc ’79, FRCSC ’82 (Plastic Surgery)] has had a rewarding career in both the private and community spheres. He enjoys running a private practice and maintains an appointment at the Scarborough Health Network. Dr. Carman recently spoke with Director of Alumni Relations, Sara Franca, about the field of plastic surgery, his gift to the Department of Surgery — and reflected on some of the more memorable moments of his career.

Dr. Joan Saary (MD '97, PGME '06, PhD '08) has never been to space, but she’s no stranger to the complex medical issues that can arise in such an extreme environment. From solving medical issues with astronauts on the International Space Station to working with futuristic technologies not yet adopted on Earth, her work in space medicine might sound like something out of science fiction. 

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.
