Celebrating Tony Pawson’s impact on science
When I was a graduate student at the University of Toronto, the name Tony Pawson stirred up feelings of respect, admiration and awe. Sadly, his untimely passing has left a gaping hole in the Toronto scientific community, however, Tony’s legend lives on.
A symposium was recently held in his honor. See the story below as reported by the Lunenfeld-Tannenbaum Research Institute.
Brilliance, curiosity, passion, humour, generosity, competitiveness.
It was no surprise that these qualities were exemplified throughout How Cells Communicate: A Symposium in Celebration of Tony Pawson’s Impact on Science. One scientific giant after another cited them as qualities that shone throughout Dr. Pawson’s life in science as they presented their latest research and reminisced about their interactions with him.
