AllerGen is pleased to announce that Dr. Catherine Biggs has been awarded the prestigious AllerGen Emerging Clinician-Scientist Research Fellowship.

During the two-year Fellowship, Dr. Biggs will train under the supervision of AllerGen investigator Dr. Stuart Turvey, pediatric immunologist and director of clinical research at BC Children’s Hospital, and professor at The University of British Columbia.

This is the fourth such fellowship that AllerGen has awarded since 2011. Valued at $250,000, these awards enable newly trained Canadian allergists and immunologists to advance their research expertise and pursue a combined career as clinicians and academic researchers.

“Bringing Dr. Biggs back to Canada with this important AllerGen Fellowship is a big win for the Canadian clinical immunology community,” says Dr. Turvey.
