Generous donation supports chair in heart lung innovation

With a generous $3 million donation from Michael and Carmelina De Lazzari, St. Paul’s appointed internationally renowned lung scientist Dr. Don Sin as the inaugural holder of the De Lazzari Family Chair in Heart Lung Innovation (HLI) and director of the Centre of HLI.

“St. Paul’s Hospital is a hub for innovative research in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD),” says Dr. Sin. “I believe we will see treatments improve dramatically in our life time, thanks to world-leading research being done right here in Vancouver.”
