It was a shared love for the 70s rock band, Dire Straits, that first formed a friendship between Dr. Nigil Haroon and UHN's Dr. Robert Inman.
At the time, Dr. Haroon was finishing his rheumatology training in Lucknow, India. Dr. Inman was visiting the country for a rheumatology conference and when Dr. Haroon told him he had no strong plans for his next move, Dr. Inman asked him to consider coming to Canada.
"Now, our labs are together," says Dr. Haroon, who is currently a scientist at the Krembil Research Institute.
"Most of our projects are interlinked, and our lab meetings we do together, so we bounce ideas off each other. It's a great environment to be working with the Spondylitis team and Professor Rob Inman."
Dr. Haroon is one of many UHN employees who have come to Canada from around the world. In this country, and at UHN, they have found a new home.
To celebrate Canada 150, we're telling audio stories in a podcast series to celebrate our diverse community at UHN. Every Thursday, we'll share a new story about one of our employees who came to Canada from around the world, or a story about an employee whose family has called Canada home for thousands of years. Tune in weekly for a new story on our podcast, Home.
