Three Faculty of Medicine researchers have been renewed as Canada Research Chairs (CRCs) in recognition of excellence in their respective fields of study.

The Government of Canada is investing approximately $195 million towards 260 new and renewed Chairs at 47 institutions across Canada, including sixteen new and renewed chairs at UBC.

Together with the chairs announced earlier this year, the total investment marks the program’s largest in a single calendar year.

Dr. Don Sin, Canada Research Chair in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Tier 1, has published more than 550 peer-reviewed papers and is a section editor of the European Respiratory Journal. He is ranked the top medical expert in COPD across North America and second in the world.
