ABOUT MICHAEL S. JEWETT
Dr. Jewett is Professor of Surgery (Urology) at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and at the University of Toronto where he held the Farquaharson Clinical Research Chair in Oncology. He is a member and has served in leadership roles and received awards from many cancer and urological associations including the International Society of Urology, the Society of Urologic Oncology, the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the American Urological Association and the Canadian Urology Association. In 2017, he was awarded the Canadian Cancer Research Alliance Award for Exceptional Leadership in Patient Involvement in Cancer Research in 2017. He has been a visiting professor or speaker in over 30 countries at over 100 institutions. He has held multiple research grants and has published more than 400 scientific papers, book chapters and articles. He currently serves as Co-Chair of the NCI renal task force. He has had a long interest in many aspects of kidney cancer research, patient care and knowledge transfer and was an enthusiastic supporter of the founding of Kidney Cancer Canada.
Dr. Jewett’s passionate interest in patient advocacy, wellbeing, education, interconnectness and quality of care is not only exceptional in Canada, but internationally where his reputation as leading Uro-Oncologist affords him significant reach and ability to influence a new generation of clinician leaders. The volunteer hours he has put into this mission has certainly not been a path to personal recognition or glory. He has selflessly dedicated untold hours of his time to patient empowerment, and in doing so has directly improved the lives of thousands of Canadians affected by kidney, bladder and testis cancers for generations to come.
