This press release is available in French.

Montreal, June 1, 2010 The University of Montreal has excelled at the 2010 Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Awards. Three University of Montreal researchers won major prizes, including the NSERC Gerhard Herzberg Canada Gold Medal for Science and Engineering, which is the country's highest scientific honour. Professor Gilles Brassard, inventor of quantum cryptography and founder of quantum information science in Canada of international renown, received the Gerhard Herzberg Gold Medal that comes with a $1 million grant for university-based research.

The NSERC John C. Polanyi Award was presented to a team of astrophysicists, led by University of Montreal professor, Ren Doyon and his doctoral students, David Lafrenire and Christian Marois, who now work at the University of Toronto and the National Research Council of Canada respectively. Dr. Doyon and his team captured the first-ever image of a planetary system outside our own solar system. Their achievement has ushered in a new era of imaging exoplanets; an important step towards characterizing the diversity and physical properties of the universe's planetary systems.

Delphine Bouilly, a University of Montreal doctoral student in physics under the direction of Professor Richard Martel, received the NSERC Andr Hamer Postgraduate Prize for her research into the electrical properties of carbon nanotubes and assessing their suitability for use in electronics.

"NSERC awards are highly coveted," says Joseph Hubert, vice rector of research at the University of Montreal, as he lauded recipients. "This year's winners bring together a pioneer, a breakthrough team and a promising future researcher. These prestigious awards recognize their research excellence and provide our scientists with the incentive to intensify their ef
