In this day and age, scientific advances can only result from teamwork and the successful transfer of knowledge to the next generation. Mentorship therefore is a crux of research and innovation. Dr. Derek McKay emulates what a great mentor should be. He knows how to guide, he knows how to listen, and he excels at sharing his enthusiasm for the pursuit of knowledge. It is both a pleasure and an honor to introduce Dr. Derek McKay as the 2020 recipient of the prestigious Clark P. Read Mentor Award from the American Society of Parasitologists (ASP). Dr. McKay is a tremendous scientist and a prolific researcher. Among his many awards, he was also awarded the 2008 Stoll-Stunkard Memorial Lectureship from the ASP. I have known Derek for over 25 yr, and it gives me great pleasure to introduce him to you.
