Paul Kurywchak, Ph.D.
Many saw the apple fall, but Newton asked Why?
Paul Kurywchak, Ph.D., is the kid that most grew up with that asked all the questions about how things work and why they break down. Why is the sky blue? How do dogs’ noses work? How does the human body work? These were but a few of the questions he was curious about as a child. Like so many, Dr. Kurywchak has lost several family members and friends to cancer so he turned his natural curiosity and love for science into a career as a cancer researcher.
Kishor Wasan, PLC, R.Ph., Ph.D., FAAPS, FCAHS, FCSPS
The University of British Columbia
A Texas-sized career
For as long as Kishor Wasan, PLC, R.Ph., Ph.D. can remember, he has had a fascination with Texas. He has been a fan of the Dallas Cowboys since he was young boy. He often read about Texas and loved everything about it. When it came time to apply for college, on a whim he pursued the pharmacy program at The University of Texas at Austin. He didn’t think his acceptance chances were good and was surprised the day he received word that he was one of the first Canadians accepted into UT’s pharmacy program. Since then, his career has become almost as big as Texas.
