Bravo gala honours McGill’s winning researchers and scholars

Published: 6 June 2022

On May 18, 97 laureates were celebrated at the Bravo 2022 gala, an event honouring McGill researchers and scholars across disciplines who won special awards, memberships, and prizes during the preceding year.

As McGill approached its landmark 200th anniversary, 55 of McGill’s top researchers were asked to answer the question: What will be the biggest change in your field over the next 25 years? Their responses were featured in a project called the Bicentennial Digital Time Capsule, an initiative led by Research and Innovation, which launched in March 2021. The Digital Time Capsule videos were officially sealed during the Bravo ceremony on May 18 and the videos will be revealed in batches of five each year at McGill Homecoming for the next 10 years.

To commemorate the sealing of the Digital Time Capsule, three Bravo laureates--including Jaswinder Singh of the Department of Plant Science--joined Vice-Principal Crago on stage as part of a panel to watch their time capsule videos, discuss their predictions and to dig a little deeper into their thoughts on the future of research in their fields.
