The Department of Psychiatry would like to congratulate Dr. William Honer on receiving the John Cleghorn Award for Research Excellence and Leadership 2018 , given out at the Annual Meeting of the Canadian Psychiatric Association this past September.
The J.M. Cleghorn Award is dedicated to the memory of Dr. John Cleghorn and is presented annually to a CPA member for excellence in clinical psychiatric research or leadership in advancing clinical psychiatric research in Canada.
The Research Committee believes that Dr. Honer’s outstanding and impactful contributions to the basic and clinical research of schizophrenia reflect the high standards set by Dr. John M. Cleghorn. Dr. Honer’s research has established the effectiveness of medication treatment of first-episode psychosis in mitigating symptoms and relapse. The committee believes that Dr. Honer is a renowned academic, a highly sought mentor, and a clinician scientist dedicated to improving the care of vulnerable patients.
