"Maureen Andrew was an internationally-renowned clinician scientist who pioneered foundational, life-saving research in the field of pediatric thrombosis and developmental hemostasis. As a professor of pediatrics who joined McMaster in 1981, she was also highly-regarded for her dedication in the treatment of pediatric patients with blood clotting disorders and she established a toll-free number so physicians around the world could consult at any time. Her passion for teaching proved a gift to those she mentored, and now many are leaders in the field. After her too-early death in 2001, awards in tribute were established by the Society for Pediatric Research and the Canadian Pediatric Thrombosis and Hemostasis Network."
