This release is available in French.

Montreal, June 16, 2010 Scientists from the Universit de Montral and its affiliated engineering school, cole Polytechnique, have received major funding from the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). Over $3 million was awarded to enable both institutions to launch training and mentorship programs for promising young researchers.

The new funding is part of the NSERC CREATE (Collaborative Research and Training Experience) Program, which will support 20 projects across the nation thanks to a $32 million contribution from the Government of Canada.

The NSERC CREATE Training Program was launched to help undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate students in science and engineering upgrade their skills to make a successful transition from academia to the workplace. What's more, the program is designed to foster a brain-gain by attracting highly qualified students nationally and internationally.

Christian Baron, director and professor of the Universit de Montral Department of Biochemistry, will receive $1.65 million over six years to develop a program called Cellular dynamics of macromolecular complexes (CDMC).

Dr. Baron, who investigates more effective ways to treat infectious disease, has created an interdisciplinary program with experts from the Universit de Montral, the Institut de recherches cliniques (IRCM), McGill University, Concordia University, the University of Toronto and the University of British Columbia. His research network will enable students to learn the latest in concepts and techniques behind the molecular machines that drive life.

Carl-ric Aubin, a professor at the cole Polytechnique Department of Mechanical Engineering and a researcher at Sainte-Justine University Hospital Center, will receive $1.65 million over six years to spearhead a bi
