Lawrence Kazak, Ph.D., Principal Investigator at the Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Institute (GCI), has been recognized with the J. A. F. Stevenson award from the Canadian Physiological Society. This award, named for renowned physiologist and McGill alumni James A. F. Stevenson, offers a visiting professorship to an outstanding early-career physiologist in Canada. Prof. Kazak will present his award lecture at the 2024 American Physiology Summit in Long Beach, California.

The focus of the Kazak lab is understanding energy metabolism in physiology and disease, with research interests extending to cancer cell metabolism and immunity. His cutting-edge research and distinction as an outstanding young investigator prompted his nomination for this award.

“Lawrence Kazak is an exceptional scientist, a pillar of the GCI community who has already distinguished himself through notable contributions to his field,” shared Morag Park, Ph.D., Director of the GCI. “His recognition is well merited.”
