Honour Roll

Dr. Julio Montaner, a professor of Medicine, has been awarded $1 million from international pharmaceutical company Bohringer Ingleheim Canada.

Montaner is applying the funds to endow a professorship in health outcomes research in HIV/AIDS. The award is one of the largest single awards of its kind in Canada and was given in recognition of Montaner's contribution to HIV/AIDS.

Brent Sauder has been appointed director of the Office of Research Services effective June 1. A UBC Forestry graduate, Sauder is currently executive director of the B.C. Advanced Systems Institute.

He previously held various positions in forestry research at MacMillan Bloedel and served as a director for the New Media Innovation Centre, Science Council of British Columbia, and the Greater Vancouver Economic Partnership.

Richard Kerekes has been appointed the first holder of a new Paprican Professorship in Pulp and Paper Engineering. The professorship, created by the Faculty of Applied Science in collaboration with the Pulp and Paper Research Institute of Canada (Paprican), will be funded from a $1-million endowment created by UBC and Paprican.

Kerekes is the founding director of UBC's Pulp and Paper Centre.

The Alumni Association's Trek magazine won silver in three categories at the recent CASE (Council for the Advancement and Support of Education) District VIII competitions. The awards were received for best writing ("The Striptease Project"), best design and best overall magazine.

The magazine is edited by the association's Chris Petty and designed by Chris Dahl in UBC's Public Affairs Office. UBC's Public Affairs Office won bronze in the Special Audiences-Annual Report category for UBC's 2001 Annual Report, "Out There." The report was designed by Leap Creative.

The Public Affairs Office also won silver in the Special Audiences-Fundraising Booklet category for the Brain Research Centre case statement. The booklet was designed by Tandem Design Associates.

Both publications were developed by Karen McDonald in the Public Affairs Office.

CASE District VIII includes member colleges, universities and independent schools in Western Canada and the U.S. Pacific Northwest.
