Hellmuth award lectures Friday

Lauded for their outstanding contributions to English literature and cancer research, Michael Groden and Ann Chambers will be honored this Friday (May 20) with the Hellmuth Prize, The University of Western Ontario’s highest distinction for sustained excellence in research.

The public ceremony will be held at 4 p.m. in the Richard Ivey School of Business, Room 2R23. Along with receiving their award, each will give a brief lecture on their ongoing research.
