Archibald Byron Macallum Lectureship
The annual Archibald Byron Macallum Lecture is made possible by a bequest to the Department of Physiology, University of Toronto from the Estate of Alexander Douglas Macallum in honour of his father, Archibald Byron Macallum, who was Chairman of this Department from 1891 to 1908. The Lectureship is awarded each year to a distinguished physiologist.
We are delighted to announce that Dr. Mona Nemer is Physiology's 2018 Macallum Lecturer. Dr. Nemer is a distinguished cardiac researcher (Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, Member of the Order of Canada) whose work focuses on the molecular mechanisms of heart development and function, particularly in relation to heart failure and congenital heart diseases. She is the former Vice-President of Research at the University of Ottawa, and most recently, Dr. Nemer was appointed as Canada’s Chief Science Advisor.
