Dr. Paul O’Byrne

Dr. Paul O’Byrne, principal investigator for AllerGen’s Clinical Investigator Collaborative Legacy Project, Professor and Chair of Medicine at McMaster University, and Director of the Firestone Institute for Respiratory Health at St. Joseph’s Healthcare, is one of five faculty members just named “Distinguished University Professors” by McMaster University—the institution’s highest honour.

“These truly are ‘complete scholars,'” said Provost David Wilkinson of Dr. O’Byrne and his fellow honorees. “They represent the best of McMaster in teaching, research and community engagement, and should be proud of their accomplishments.” See the Faculty of Health Sciences announcement here.

The title of Distinguished University Professor was created in 1996 and is awarded to “those professors who achieve the highest level of excellence in teaching, learning and research.”
