Meet the Researcher: Dr. Ed Pryzdial

By July 5, 2018No Comments

Prof. Ed Pryzdial was one of the first people that I met when I joined the Centre for Blood Research (CBR). I remember in our first encounter when I introduced myself to him he said, “I know you; I knew you were joining the CBR before you knew!” Ever since, I always thought of Ed (Pryzdial) as the best friend of Ed (Conway), but I also got to see him frequently in our joint lab meetings. I thought of him as the smart person in the room who asked the most critical questions after the students’ presentations, the kind of person that you secretly wished was not in the room when you presented, but someone I never really got to know closely. Recently, I had the opportunity to interview Ed, and discovered that he has very sage, while at the same time humorous, wisdom that makes you want to sit and listen for hours, if he lets you!
