Honouring Dr. Murray B. Urowitz: A Legacy of Lupus Research

March 21, 2024 – Lupus Canada is honoured to support the Dr. Murray B. Urowitz Chair in Lupus Research. For over 50 years, Dr. Murray Urowitz led the world in lupus diagnosis, treatment, research and education.

The Dr. Murray B. Urowitz Chair in Lupus Research will ensure that the tradition of international excellence in patient care, research and education is kept alive and well at Toronto Western Hospital.

With Dr. Urowitz’s recent retirement, Dr. Zahi Touma will continue to build on his work to ensure that the Lupus Clinic and Program at Toronto Western Hospital will continue to flourish.

The UHN Foundation presented Lupus Canada with the Upper Canada Medal in appreciation for our ongoing support.

The Upper Canada Medal was originally created by the Loyal and Patriotic Society of Upper Canada to provide recognition of distinguished service and bravery to volunteer soldiers in the Way of 1812.
