The better the science, the better the patient care.
- Dr. Lou Siminovitch
Lou’s leadership to the scientific and academic community changed so many careers. His work shaped Canadian medicine in a very profound way and his impact can be seen every day in the halls and labs of Mount Sinai Hospital.
- Dr. Gary Newton, President and CEO of Sinai Health
Canadian biomedical research owes a huge debt to Lou. He instilled the importance of mentorship, of quality, and of balance - and inspired us all to fulfill our potential. His impact will live on in the many scientists and leaders he inspired.
- Jim Woodgett, former Koffler Director of Research at LTRI
He was truly a giant of Canadian science, and a trusted mentor to me. His vision was the guiding light for what LTRI has become today. I’m so proud to see his legacy live on in the science that is changing lives and healthcare systems worldwide.
