Biography :

Professor Tak Wah Mak is an immunologist and cancer researcher. His landmark paper on the cloning of a human T cell receptor gene was an important breakthrough in our understanding of the human immune system. His current research interests include the biology of the immune system, the biology of programmed cell death and the pathogenesis of cancer. Recently, he has isolated and analysed the effects of genes that regulate the immune system and suppress tumours, paving the way for future therapies.

Mak is a Professor in the Departments of Medical Biophysics and Immunology at the University of Toronto, and Director of the Campbell Family Institute for Breast Cancer Research. His achievements have been recognised through international awards, including the Gairdner International Prize, the Novartis Prize in Immunology, the Sloan Prize, the Paul Ehrlich Prize and the King Faisal Prize of Medicine. Mak is a foreign associate of the US National Academy of Sciences and a Fellow of the Royal Society. He took up the chairmanship of the Croucher Foundation in June 2011.
