Matthew Teeter, a Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry professor and Lawson Health Research Institute scientist, won the 2015 John Charles Polanyi Prize. The $20,000 award recognizes the excellence of Teeter’s research in joint replacement. It was presented at a ceremony in Toronto by the Honourable Reza Moridi, Ontario’s Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities.
Teeter’s research focuses on the potential of imaging and sensors for better evaluating the repair of diseased joints.
Teeter is one of five Ontario researchers awarded with the 2015 Polanyi Prize, an award established by the provincial government to honour the achievements of the 1986 Nobel Prize in Chemistry winner, John Charles Polanyi.
