Chemist Tomas Hudlicky can now add “innovator” to his many titles.
Hudlicky has won the Ontario Partnership for Innovation and Commercialization (OPIC)’s Innovator of the Year award, which comes with a $5,000 prize to support his research.
The award recognizes an outstanding OPIC faculty member who has advanced academic innovation for one or both outcomes of a better quality of life and economic well-being.
“Dr. Hudlicky has developed efficient and ‘green’ processes for the production of many medicines, resulting in a cleaner environment and relief for thousands of patients,” says Karen Zavitz, OPIC’s managing director.
