Top 40 under 40

Dr. Proton Rahman
Dr. Proton Rahman was recognized by the Globe and Mail.
Dr. Proton Rahman, associate professor of medicine at Memorial, has been named one of Canada's Top 40 Under 40 for 2003. The announcement appeared earlier this month in the Globe and Mail, along with an accompanying feature article in Report on Business magazine.

As well as his university appointment, Dr. Rahman is a consultant rheumatologist for the Health Care Co-operation of St. John’s, chief scientific officer for Newfound Genomics, and a clinician scientist with a strong research interest in genetics and prognosis of rheumatic disease.

Dr. Rahman said he thanks his nominators, former dean of medicine Dr. Ian Bowmer and David King, president of Memorial’s Genesis Group, as well as those who supported the nomination.

Canada's Top 40 Under 40 is a national program founded and managed by The Caldwell Partners to celebrate leaders of today and tomorrow, and to honour Canadians who have reached a significant level of success but have not yet reached the age of 40.

The program is designed to promote mentorship and professional development by introducing these leaders to the established business community and by promoting them as role models for young Canadians.

In choosing the recipients, the board considers the nominees' achievements in the following areas: vision and leadership, innovation and achievement, impact, community involvement and contribution and growth/development strategy.
