Leadership

Our team combines grassroots science engagement and citizen science-based research in a way perhaps never seen before in Canada for preventing cancers. Evict Radon is led by Dr. Aaron Goodarzi of the University of Calgary, who is the federally-appointed Canada Research Chair for Radiation Exposure Disease.

Aaron is the Canada Research Chair for Radiation Exposure Disease. He obtained his PhD from University of Calgary in 2005 and trained as a post-doctoral scholar at the Genome Damage and Stability Centre at the University of Sussex (UK) until 2010. In 2011, he opened his own laboratory at the University of Calgary’s School of Medicine. In 2015, he was named one of Calgary’s Top 40 Under 40 and, in 2016 he was made a University of Calgary “Peak Scholar” for his work in knowledge engagement and innovation with regards to radon gas induced cancer. Dr. Goodarzi is a founder of Evict Radon and Chair of the Board.
