Update May 8, 2013: Office of Sponsored Research reopens in James Building
Research and International Relations is pleased to announce that the Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) has returned to the James Administration Building, as of Monday, May 13, 2013.
Due to extensive flooding in the James Building in February, McGill temporarily relocated OSR staff off campus. Thank you for your support, patience, and flexibility during the period while we were displaced.
After 14 years in senior university administration, Dr. Rima Rozen will return full-time to her work in research and teaching as the James McGill Professor of Human Genetics and Pediatrics, when her current term as Associate Vice-Principal (Research and International Relations) ends on January 31, 2013.
It is with much sadness that I communicate to the McGill neuroscience community the news of the death of Rita Levi-Montalcini on December 31, 2012. She was the discoverer of the first trophic protein in the nervous system, Nerve Growth Factor (NGF). For this seminal discovery she was given the 1986 Nobel Prize in Medicine. The discovery of NGF opened a new era in Neuroscience research.
