Dr. Lori West and (from left) Dr. Darren Freed; Dr. Jason Dyck, Principal Investigator; and Dr. Jayan Nagendran won the University Hospital Foundation’s $1 million Gerald Averback Medical Research Award in cardiovascular gene therapy, genomics and vascular biology.

The Gerald Averback Medical Research Award was made possible by a generous donation from Saskatoon-based Developments West Corporation to the University Hospital Foundation.

“I’m thrilled to see that Developments West Corporation’s donation to the University Hospital Foundation has resulted in such exciting and worthwhile research,” said Mr. Averback, speaking on behalf of DWC. “Gene therapy and genomics are the way of the future.”
