Melville Undergraduate Research Bursary in Pharmacology & Therapeutics

The Department of Pharmacology & Therapeutics is establishing The Melville Undergraduate Research Bursary in Pharmacology, in honour of former chair, Dr. Kenneth Melville.

Kenneth Melville, BSc’26, MDCM’26, MSc’31, (1902–1975) was an extraordinary man. Born in Jamaica, he graduated at the top of his class in 1926. In 1953, he became Chair of McGill’s Department of Pharmacology & Therapeutics—and the first person from a developing country to hold a Chair at McGill. Melville was internationally respected, with a prolific scientific career. He served as a mentor for students from developing regions and was a leader in Montreal’s Caribbean community. In the spirit of Dr. Melville’s legacy, the Department of Pharmacology & Therapeutics wishes to establish an Undergraduate Research Bursary in his honour. Read more about Melville Legacy
