The McArthur family has long supported the pursuit of groundbreaking research at St. Joe’s. Each year, a world-renowned researcher is honoured with the Anne & Neil McArthur Research Award. The 2021 recipient is Dr. Martin Kolb.

Dr. Kolb is a respirologist and research director of the Firestone Institute for Respiratory Health at St. Joe’s. He is professor and director of the Division of Respirology at McMaster University, and the inaugural Jack Gauldie Boehringer Ingelheim Chair in Interstitial Lung Disease.

For 25 years, Dr. Kolb has been at the forefront of international respirology research and care. His pioneering work in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis has quite literally changed, improved, and extended the lives of people living with this debilitating lung disease for which there is no cure. The author of 300 peer-reviewed articles, the Chief Editor of the European Respiratory Journal, and the holder of multiple research chairs, Dr. Kolb is a most deserving recipient of the McArthur Research Award.

All are welcome to attend this exciting presentation, entitled “From Nothing to Disease-Altering Management: A 25 Year Journey of Pulmonary Fibrosis Research.”
