Tarun Katapally’s work with the Indigenous Peoples’ Health Research Centre (IPHRC) has evolved from a research assistant to a postdoctoral fellow and finally to a research associate. He is now a research affiliate with our centre’s future projects.

Tarun is now a new faculty member at the Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy working with faculties at the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan to conduct research in health policy.

Although he is no longer employed by IPHRC, he will continue working with us on different projects.

“Luckily, I won't miss anything because I am not leaving. You cannot get rid of me yet,” he said jokingly.

During his time at our centre, the biggest thing he learned is the work we do is for the people and the communities we work with.

“I met some of the best people I have ever worked with at IPHRC and although I am a bit of a gypsy and never stick around in one place, the people and the work at IPHRC played a big role in me staying put in Saskatchewan.”
