Farewell interview with Dr. Hani El-Gabalawy, former Scientific Director of CIHR-IMHA

Dr. Hani El-Gabalawy, an internationally respected rheumatologist, Professor of Medicine and Immunology, and a senior clinician at the University of Manitoba, served as Scientific Director of CIHR Institute of Musculoskeletal Health and Arthritis (CIHR-IMHA) from April 2013 – June 2017.

He forged collaborations among researchers and clinicians to improve the health and well-being of those who suffer from various diseases related to the Institute (such as: rheumatoid arthritis; fibromyalgia; chronic pain and fatigue; and juvenile arthritis). Some of these collaborations included the National Institutes of Health in the United States, the James Lind Alliance in the United Kingdom, and ZonMw and Reumafonds in the Netherlands.

Before his departure, Dr. El-Gabalawy took some time for an audio interview to highlight some of his other achievements as Scientific Director of CIHR-IMHA. We thank him for his contributions to Canadians and wish him the best in the future, as he continues to conduct Indigenous health research and teach the next generation of rheumatology students at the University of Manitoba.
