Dr. Michael Boffa has been a faculty member in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry since July of 2008. As of July 1, 2016, Dr. Boffa has taken up a position in the Department of Biochemistry at Western University. Over the past eight years, Dr. Boffa developed into a first rate researcher, becoming a world renowned expert in elucidating the physiological and pathophysiological roles of thrombin-activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor (TAFI). He was very successful in attracting research funding from NSERC, HSFO, and the Windsor Essex County Cancer Centre Foundation. Dr Boffa also was able to build a research group composed of a cadre of very enthusiastic and accomplished undergraduate and graduate students. Michael is an excellent teacher/mentor and his service to the Department and the University was unparalleled. We are very sorry to see him go!
Michael, a heathy farewell and best wishes for continued success at Western!
