Zixuan Li received the McGill MedStar Award for her publication entitled “The Organophosphate Esters Used as Flame Retardants and Plasticizers Affect H295R Adrenal Cell Phenotypes and Functions”, in recognition of the excellent research carried out in the Faculty of Medicine at McGill University. The findings from this paper demonstrate that organophosphate esters have chemical-specific effects on cortisol and aldosterone production and thus the adrenal may be an important target for these endocrine-disrupting chemicals.

Researchers at McGill University have made an important step forward in understanding the cause of a rare neurodegenerative disease noted for its occurrence in the Charlevoix and Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean regions of Quebec.

Autosomal recessive spastic ataxia of Charlevoix-Saguenay (ARSACS) is a genetic condition that affects coordination and balance from early childhood. Most ARSACS patients require a wheelchair by the time they reach their 30s or 40s. There is no cure and current treatments provide only limited symptomatic relief.
