Researchers from McGill, the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) and The Neuro (MNI) have received Innovation Grants from the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) for their respective research projects. Their projects are among the 46 selected across Canada and awarded by the CCS for nearly $9 million. Here is a rundown of the various projects:
On April 10th, 2014, the Canadian Association of Physicists awarded its 2014 Herzberg Medal to McGill professor Matt Dobbs. Professor Dobbs has developed new digital telescope technology of unprecedented reach and precision that is allowing researchers to demystify the early history of the cosmos. His work aims to improve our understanding of how the universe began—and where it’s headed.
