Chemist Tomas Hudlicky can now add “innovator” to his many titles.
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.
OPIC, supported through the Ontario Centres of Excellence, is a virtual network of specialized technology transfer experts located at nine member institutions.
These experts enhance knowledge and technology transfer capacity by sharing expertise, educational resources, and partnering with clients both within the institutions and in the surrounding communities.
