Swedish university honors probiotics scientist
Date:2/15/2008

Dr. Gregor Reid, Assistant Director of the Lawson Health Research Institute and Professor of Microbiology & Immunology and Surgery at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry at The University of Western Ontario has been awarded an honorary doctorate degree in biology from rebro University in Sweden. Dr. Reid is the first Canadian to receive this award and the only recipient this year in the field of science. The award recognizes Dr. Reids international leadership in probiotic research, his contributions toward improved health in women and the application of his work in Africa.

rebro University is one of the largest universities in Sweden with over 15,000 students and several campus locations. Research conducted at the University centers around five thematic areas, one of which aligns with Dr. Reids research initiatives: to carry out research in which human value, social life, psychological, biological and existential conditions come to the fore as the basis for understanding how health and life quality can be preserved and reclaimed. Among rebros alumnae is the Swedish royal family. In 2006, the King and Queen of Sweden presented Dr. Reids Ph.D. student, Peter Cadieux, with the Polanyi Prize.

I dedicate my award to all the students who have had to work hard, often against the odds because their field of study is not main stream, says Dr. Reid. The key is to believe in yourself, the work you are doing, and the fact that your contribution can make a difference.
