B. Langer Surgeon Scientist Award
Aaron Nauth, an orthopaedic surgeon at St. Michael’s Hospital is this year’s recipient of the award. Aaron received his medical degree at Queen’s University, completed his residency training in Toronto, and then pursued two fellowships: one at the University of British Columbia in Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy and the other at the University of Toronto in Trauma and Upper Extremity. His research focuses on the basic science of trauma and fracture healing in conjunction with stem cell therapy. Since 2014, Aaron has captured 12 grants totalling well over $750,000 in research funding; he has been the PI or Co-Investigator on 10 of those grants.
Congratulations Dr. Nauth!
