The American Urology Association (AUA) Foundation
and the urology community have recognized Dr. Darius Bägli as the 2012 Distinguished Mentor. This honour has been bestowed upon Dr. Bägli for his track record of mentoring numerous research scholars to impeccable standards. He was selected by a panel of his peers who wanted to acknowledge the respect and admiration he has earned from the entire urologic research community.

“Dr. Bägli is an incredibly deserving recipient of the Distinguished Mentor Award,” says Dr. Janet Rossant, Chief of Research. “He consistently displays an authentic generosity and creates a supportive environment for every individual in which he interacts. The AUA Foundation  has selected a recipient who truly exemplifies the values this award represents.”

Dr. Bägli is a Senior Attending Paediatric Urologist and Associate Surgeon-In-Chief at The Hospital for Sick Children, and Senior Associate Scientist in the SickKid's Research Institute. He is also a Professor of Surgery at the University of Toronto. Dr. Bägli is currently investigating extracellular matrix biology as it pertains to wound healing and biomechanically-mediated injury in the lower urinary tract.

The Distinguished Mentor Award will be presented at the annual AUA Foundation Scholar Awards Breakfast on Monday May 21.
