    Dr. Hancock has made seminal discoveries in the area of antibiotic resistance and their interaction with bacteria cells. His contributions to science and research include the establishment of one of the first Networks of Centres of Excellence, the Canadian Bacterial Diseases Network (1990), UBC’s Centre for Microbial Diseases and Immunity Research, and the BC Centre for Drug Research and Development to bridge the gap between basic research and industry. He has been awarded Canada’s three leading health research prizes: the 2005 McLaughlin Medal of the Royal Society of Canada, the 2006 Michael Smith Prize from the Canadian Institutes for Health Research as Canada’s Health Researcher of the Year, and the 2007 Killam Prize of the Canada Council. In 2003, Dr. Hancock won the Aventis Award, the world’s leading prize for antibiotics research.
