Congratulations are extended to Dr. Jean-Eric Ghia who  received a University of Manitoba Outreach Award at a special reception on  November 13, 2017.

In addition to his successful research activities at the University of Manitoba with the Department of Internal Medicine – Section of Gastroenterology, and the Department of Immunology, Dr. Jean Eric Ghia has been involved in  scientific community outreach with Crohn’s and Colitis Canada (Seven Oaks Wellness Center, Reh-fit). In addition, he has become a media personality and regular contributor on CBC’s Radio Canada with a biweekly radio spot promoting researchers and their research conducted at the University, and a monthly French TV spot presenting research done in Western Canada in a segment called   “Qu’est-ce qu’on cherche?”

As noted by Dr. Charles Bernstein, clinician-scientist, Section of Gastroenterology, Jean Eric Ghia is a wonderful example of success when clinical and basic science departments collaborate. Since his appointment at the University of Manitoba, Dr. Ghia’s research investigations and collaborations, grant success, publication record, teaching, mentoring, and service activities have been outstanding. He has been extremely successful in bridging basic science to future clinicians.

As reported in the linked article below “Dr. Ghia has mastered the art of presenting the rigours of science in an easily understandable and entertaining format on various media platforms.”
