9:35 AM - 10:30 AM Stuart Maddin Lectureship

Saturday NOV 13

Professor Stuart Maddin "Dermatology 101"

Needless to say I am both honored and humbled to present the Dr. Stuart Maddin lecture at Derm Update 2021 and the anniversary of his 100th birthday (it’s actually his 101st birthday). In Stuarts book “The making of a Dermatologist: More to skin than meets the eye” I do get mentioned (honourable or dishonorable), Stuart describes me as quote “he can be prickly, he can be domineering and occasionally sometimes less than collegial.” Later down the page Stuart states “He’s punched way above his weight in terms of basic research that he’s done from that small community, compared with many, many other dermatologists in Canada who started out with greater resources at their disposal, and done bugger all.” My favourite quotes are “I’ve got great respect for him” and “I’m proud to know him”. Professor Stuart Maddin was a mentor and will always be a mentor and he was everything I wanted to be: a kind and caring Dermatologist, an outstanding research scientist, diligent entrepreneur and friend to many. Although according to Stuart, I’ve managed 3 out 4. So thanks to Stuart and all the wonderful mentors and teachers I had during my career.

I will share with you some of the clinical research and business endeavours I have had the extreme pleasure to be engaged in over the past 32 years. I will be forever grateful to my mentors Dr. Stuart Maddin, Dr. David Hawkins, Dr. David Gratton and Dr. Eugene Farber. I’m also forever indebted to supportive, caring and inspiring teachers at McGill University including Dr. Ralph Wilkinson, Bill Gerstein, Ted Arsenault, John Ellie, Brenda Moroz just to name a few. I awaken everyday with renewed vigor and abundant enthusiasm as I continue to help improve the lives of our patients through the practice of science and evidence based dermatology.
