DR. FRANCIS X. WITKOWSKI AWARD

 

Dr. Francis Witkowski was an innovative scientist who was on the cutting edge of technology. Dr. Witkowski was a world leader in mapping the electrical alterations that occur in the heart during ventricular fibrillation. His advances in the use of optical imaging to map cardiac electrical activity provided an important new approach to the study of ventricular fibrillation. To remember and honour this innovative approach to science the Cardiovascular Research Group and the Division of Cardiology of the Faculty of Medicine, University of Alberta have created the Dr. Francis X. Witkowski Publication Award.

 

The Dr. Francis X. Witkowski Award is given to a young investigator and will favour innovative or technologically based science.
