Renowned researcher & community leader to receive honorary doctorate
WINNIPEG, MB – Dr. Pawan K. Singal, an internationally renowned cardiovascular researcher, educator, and community leader will receive an honorary degree at The University of Winnipeg’s autumn convocation on Friday, October 12.
Singal is a professor of physiology and has served as the director of the Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences at the University of Manitoba. As a researcher, Singal has made significant contributions to understanding the mechanisms of heart failure due to chemotherapeutic drugs in the treatment of cancer patients — research with the potential to improve cancer treatment outcomes.
Singal’s commitment to community and cultural understanding is reflected in his commitment to the India Centre for Academic, Business and Community Excellence — a partnership between The University of Winnipeg and the India Association of Manitoba. The India Centre works to raise awareness in Canada and India about the common outlooks and values that promote democratic and culturally diverse societies.
“The University of Winnipeg is proud to recognize Dr. Singal for his passionate commitment to cardiovascular research and his efforts to create cross-cultural understanding,” said Dr. Annette Trimbee, UWinnipeg President and Vice-Chancellor. “His work is an important example of community leadership in action.”
