Congratulations to Dr. William (Bill) Sheel on his appointment as a Distinguished University Scholar
Dr. William (Bill) Sheel, Professor, School of Kinesiology, UBC Faculty of Education, has been appointed as a Distinguished University Scholar in UBC for his innovative research examining the intersections of age, sex and gender and the effects of exercise on human health.
Every two years, a select group of ten exceptional University faculty members who have distinguished themselves as scholars in research or teaching and learning receive this honoured appointment. The President confers the designation on the recommendation of a University adjudication panel.
“My research investigates the need to understand potential sex-based differences in breathlessness symptoms and their underlying mechanisms… Understanding what is ‘normal’ in healthy older women is especially important from a clinical perspective given that many diseases of the heart and lungs occur in older individuals.” – Dr. Sheel
