Microbiology and Immunology


On Wednesday, March 15, McGill held its second day of giving, McGill24.  And thanks to YOU – the generous alumni, faculty, staff, students and parents of the University – we exceeded all expectations, raising an astounding $1.39 million on the strength of nearly 3,500 gifts.

Because of your support, the McGill (amd MIMM!) community will be even stronger. 

Until next year, stay #McGillProud!
