McGill University’s standing as a leading institution for post-doctoral research was reinforced on September 15, 2011, as the Canadian government announced the first 70 recipients of the Banting Fellowships. More fellowships were awarded to McGill than any other institution in the country. The fellowships provide elite postdoctoral researchers from Canada and around the world with $70,000 per year for two years in support of their research.

“The awarding of these Banting Fellowships to McGill researchers is an affirmation of the value of their cutting-edge research. It also highlights the resources and support available to these exceptional post-doctoral students from here and abroad who have made the decision to pursue their research in Canada and at McGill,” said Professor Heather Munroe-Blum, McGill’s Principal and Vice-Chancellor.

Three post-doctoral students from the Faculty of Medicine were selected to receive a Banting fellowship: Aurélie Cobat, Melodee Mograss and Marion Van Horn. Congratulations!
