On May 21, the Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science and Sport, announced an investment of more than $588 million through the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada’s Discovery Grants program. Nearly $35 million of this investment will go to 128 McGill-led projects, including 37 led by members of the Faculty of Medicine community. McGill’s early career researchers, those who have held an independent academic position for five years or less, lead thirty of these projects.
The funding, stemming from the $4 billion for research committed in Budget 2018, will also support graduate scholarships and postdoctoral fellowships for students in the natural sciences and engineering.
