Dr. John Polanyi wins Canada's most prestigious science award
Date:3/17/2008

berg Medal recognizes Canadian researchers whose work embodies the same combination of influence and excellence exemplified by Dr. Herzberg during his lifetime, commented Dr. Fortier. John Polanyi certainly epitomizes these values, through his research, as well as through his work in shedding new light on the social implications of science.

The other finalists for the NSERC Herzberg Medal are Dr. Gilles Brassard of the Universit de Montral and Dr. Graham Bell of McGill University. They will each receive a $50,000 research grant. As first-time finalists, Dr. Polanyi and Dr. Bell will also receive the NSERC Award of Excellence.

The NSERC Gerhard Herzberg Canada Gold Medal will be presented at a ceremony this evening in Ottawa. At the same event, NSERC will honour six rising stars of Canadian research as winners of the NSERC E.W.R. Steacie Memorial Fellowships.
