Dr. Erin Mandel-Shorser, Acting Associate Dean, Biomedical Sciences & Health Regulation

I am pleased to announce that Dr. Erin Mandel-Shorser has been appointed Acting Associate Dean, Biomedical Sciences & Health Regulation within the Faculty of Health Sciences & Wellness.

Initially starting as a part-time faculty member with the University of Guelph-Humber in January 2017, teaching courses in the B.A.Sc Kinesiology program, Erin became a full-time professor and Program Coordinator for our Bachelor of Health Sciences, Workplace Health & Wellness program in August 2017. Prior to Humber, she was a Post-Doctoral Fellow at York University, involved in research, development and testing of pharmaceutical compounds related to diabetes blood glucose management. During this time she taught and mentored laboratory students and assisted in the day-to-day administration of the lab.

Erin holds a PhD in Kinesiology and Health Science from York University, an MSc in Kinesiology and Applied Health Sciences from University of Waterloo, and a BSc in Honours Kinesiology from Western University.

Erin’s science-based background means she is well-positioned to lead the programs in this division, which include: Clinical Research, Regulatory Affairs, Biotechnology, Health Sector Regulatory Compliance, and Pharmacy Technician, as well as the newly approved IPAC and Clinical Informatics graduate certificates launching Fall 2023 and the BSc Biomedical Sciences (approval anticipated later this year).

Please join me in congratulating Erin as she transitions into her new role effective today, August 15, 2022.
