Professor Maryam Tabrizian has been inducted as a Fellow with the Royal Society of Canada. The Society announced the induction of 89 new Fellows today, each one elected by their peers in recognition of outstanding scholarly, scientific and artistic achievement. Election to the Royal Society of Canada is the highest honour a scholar can achieve.

“I feel deeply honoured to have been chosen as a Fellow of Royal Society of Canada and very thankful to be a part of a Society that recognises the achievement of hundreds of esteemed citizens,” said Professor Tabrizian. “I am hugely appreciative for the support of the Faculty of Dentistry and the Faculty of Medicine as well as my referees through the nomination process. This honour will play a pivotal role in further strengthening my research and launching new work that inspires me.”

Making this induction even more special is the fact that Professor Tabrizian is the first professor in the history of the Faculty of Dentistry to receive this honour. “Over the course of the past 20 years our Faculty has seen an extraordinary explosion in the quality and quantity of its research,” said Dean Allison. “Professor Tabrizian has contributed to this transformation by being an outstanding role model for us in promoting research and research training. Her election to the Royal Society of Canada is an extremely proud moment in the history of the Faculty of Dentistry, reflecting the excellence of both her and the Faculty’s research.”

In her nomination citation by the Royal Soceity of Canada states:
“Maryam Tabrizian has pioneered many concepts in the field of biomaterials and biointerfaces to promote the interactions and crosstalk between alive and artificial systems. This resulted in shifting the paradigm and many acclaimed publications. Of great significance are her approaches to Layer-by-Layer self-assembly of biopolymers on live cells and tissues along with inventive microfluidic platforms that she developed in her laboratory to investigate this phenomenon at the single cell level.”
