Congratulations to Josh Abraham, MD/PhD student in Laboratory Medicine & Pathobiology, supervised by Professor Karim Mekhail, on being awarded the prestigious Adel S. Sedra Distinguished Graduate Award.

Science is about so many things – the power of curiosity, the thirst for knowledge, the creativity that improves our world. For Karan (Joshua) Abraham (BSc 2011 TRIN), a student in the MD/PhD program at the Faculty of Medicine who is pursuing his doctorate in the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology, science is not just all these things, but also about sharing the wonder of discovery with the scientists of the future.

For his intriguing discoveries in cell biology, as well as his outstanding efforts to mentor young science students and pass on his passion for research, Abraham is the 2017 recipient of the Adel S. Sedra Distinguished Graduate Award. The award recognizes excellence and leadership at the graduate level and grants the winner a fellowship of up to $25,000.
