FHS alumnus and lecturer Kate Salters with Robert Hogg.

FHS faculty member named Distinguished SFU Professor

September 20, 2019

Robert Hogg is one of eight Simon Fraser University scholars to receive the prestigious title of Distinguished SFU Professor. This new designation recognizes their outstanding performance and achievements, and celebrates their international pre-eminence in their fields.

Professor Hogg’s work on HIV/AIDS in marginalized populations has helped advance treatment approaches across cultures and communities. An expert in population health, Hogg has been a member of the Faculty of Health Sciences since 2006, where he helped to establish the SFU Interdisciplinary Research Centre for HIV (SIRCH).

In addition, he is a Senior Research Fellow at the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS and also a member of the Order of Canada. His research has received support from the National Institutes of Health, Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research.

The Distinguished SFU Professor title comes with a special requirement for members to share their work with the public through events such as lectures, panels and presentations. This recognition not only spotlights the contribution they have made to their fields in the past, but also helps them magnify that impact through public engagement and student and faculty mentorship.
