Ian Smith, who was instrumental in the creation of the National Research Council Institute for Biodiagnostics in Winnipeg, has received one of Manitoba’s highest honours.
Premier Greg Selinger today awarded Smith the Order of the Buffalo Hunt.
"Dr. Smith's contribution to research, science and this city and province are well-documented and have proven invaluable in the institute's development," Selinger said in announcing the award.
Smith has received numerous awards and honours in Canada, including the Order of Canada and honorary doctorates from universities in Winnipeg and Brandon. He has also been recognized internationally by the government of Romania and the University of Stockholm in Sweden.
Smith has been a leader in the field of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and played a key role in the creation of the Centre for the Commercialization of Biomedical Technology, a collaborative initiative between the federal and provincial governments.
He also serves on the Premier's Economic Advisory Council.
The Order of the Buffalo Hunt is one of the highest honours the province can bestow on individuals and is awarded for excellence in leadership, service, sports and community commitment.
