Amro Zayed receives President’s Emerging Research Leadership Award
Professor Amro Zayed in the Department of Biology was the 2017 recipient of the York University President’s Emerging Research Leadership Award. The award was presented to Zayed at the York Research Leaders’ Gala, a star-studded annual event in the research community that showcases York’s talent by acknowledging researchers and academics who have won major awards, received large grants, made scholarly contributions in the form of published books or achieved research breakthroughs in the previous calendar year – 2016, in this case.
Zayed has already made a major impact and developed an international reputation in his field. He is a productive scholar whose genomic research on honey bees has important applications in the beekeeping industry. He attracts large amounts of funding and talented graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to York. Zayed is very active in translating and mobilizing his knowledge to improve the health of Canadian honey bees that support a large sector of our Canadian agro-economy.
