12 McGill researchers awarded Canada Research Chairs
Date:9/11/2007

Twelve McGill University researchers exploring issues from green chemistry to biochemical pharmacology to international security and ethnic conflict are among the 62 newly appointed Canada Research Chairs announced September 10 by the Honourable Diane Ablonczy, Secretary of State (Small Business and Tourism) on behalf of the Honourable Jim Prentice, Minister of Industry and minister responsible for the Canada Research Chairs Program.

McGill received five Tier-1 and seven Tier-2 Chairs, including the three renewals, for a total of $10,500,000. In addition to that amount, the Canada Foundation for Innovation is investing approximately $2,384,729 to fund research infrastructure essential to the work done by nine of those Chairs.

Building a larger base of scientific expertise and enhancing Canadas international reputation for research excellence are key elements of Mobilizing Science and Technology to Canadas Advantage, our governments new Science and Technology Strategy, said Ablonczy. Our Government recognizes the importance of doing more to help transform and commercialize scientific and technological innovations. This in turn will help create better jobs, increase economic growth and improve our quality of life.

The Government of Canada created the Canada Research Chairs (CRC) Program in 2000 to establish 2,000 research professorships across the country by 2008, with the aim of making Canada one of the world's top five countries for research and development. Since then, McGill has used its CRCs to recruit an exceptional group of international researchers as well as to repatriate a number of outstanding Canadian and Qub cois researchers from postings abroad.

"This announcement reflects the immense talent that we are attracting to McGill, said Denis Thrien, Vice-Principal (Research and International Relations). Quality research requires quality people, and we are bringing in a generation of researchers who are advancing discov
