Recipharm, a Swedish pharmaceutical development and manufacturing firm, has announced that its 2017 International Environmental Award will be presented to Karen Kidd, McMaster’s Jarislowsky Chair in Environment and Health, and Professor in Biology, and Geography & Earth Sciences. Dr. Kidd is being recognised for her field biology experiments that have revealed the impacts of human made chemicals, such as synthetic estrogen, on fish biology.
Lars Backsell, Chairman of the Board of Recipharm said: “We are delighted to present the 2017 award to Karen Kidd. Her research will no doubt be essential in building commitment towards environmental matters and provides valuable guidance for future actions in order to decrease or avoid the negative effects of chemical contamination.”
The prize ceremony will take place in Stockholm in September 2018.
