Monica Maly, a researcher in Kinesiology and Health Sciences, was named a 2022 University Research Chair, along with eight other faculty members at the University of Waterloo. The seven-year term begins July 1.
The award was established in 2004 to recognize exceptional achievement and pre-eminence in a particular field of knowledge. Maly’s research focuses on developing biomechanically sound physical activity guidelines for adults with the most common forms of arthritis that are associated with aging.
“I am really humbled and grateful to receive this award,” Maly said. “I am also really excited that the award will enable my team to accelerate our work towards improving care for people with arthritis.”
Since its inception, 123 University Research Chairs have been appointed, including this year’s recipients.
