Marek Michalak (right) accepts the 2012 University Cup from Martin Ferguson-Pell.
For Marek Michalak, the joy of teaching and the excitement of research are wrapped up in his students.
As the 2012 winner of the University Cup, the University of Alberta’s highest academic honour, Michalak measures success largely by what his students achieve in the lab and the discoveries they share with him.
The University Cup pays tribute to Michalak’s combined lifelong achievements in teaching, research and community service, but for him, it all comes back to the heartbeat of his lab—collaboration.
“It’s so rewarding to make a discovery, and you see the young people grow … every student I have, by the fourth year, is better than I am,” Michalak says. “You are only as good as your people; they make the discovery, all I do is support them.” Michalak was honoured at the annual Celebrate! Teaching, Learning and Research event held Sept. 27.
