“Please join me in congratulating Professors Cristina Amon, Maydianne Andrade and John Dick for this impressive achievement,” said Cheryl Regehr, U of T’s vice-president and provost. 

“All three are influential leaders in their respective fields – computational fluid dynamics, integrative behavioural ecology and cancer stem cell biology – and their internationally recognized, discipline-shaping research is helping to address some of the world’s grand challenges.

“I am also extremely proud of the positive impact U of T’s newest University Professors are having on our society – from setting a new standard for engineering schools worldwide and championing equity in education to transforming our understanding of the nature of cancer and paving the way for new treatments and therapies.”
