Ottawa researcher named 2013 Champion of Genetics
Date:5/8/2013

specialist in the field of SMA, a fatal neurodegenerative disease that often ends lives before age two.

"Our Champions are playing a crucial role in maintaining the reputation of Canada as a world leader in the field of genetics and molecular genomics," said CGCF board member Dr. Anny Fortin. "Dr. MacKenzie's involvement as a research scientist, medical doctor, advocate and spokesperson for the cause of spinal muscular atrophy (FightSMA) makes him one of the greatest examples of knowledge translation in Canada."

As part of the honour of being named a Champion of Genetics, Dr. MacKenzie was given the opportunity to nominate an individual he has personally mentored to apply for a $90,000 Champions of Genetics: Building the Next Generation Grant. The grant, made possible with the help of our funding partner the CIHR- Institute of Genetics, will provide much needed funding for the chosen young scientists. It will provide them the opportunity to advance their own exciting genetic research and discoveries and to mentor yet the next generation of scientists, perpetuating Canada's level of excellence in genetic research.

Also honoured by the Canadian Gene Cure Foundation along with Dr. MacKenzie were:

Dr. Bartha Knoppers, Canada Research Chair in Law and Medicine at McGill University; Director of the Centre of Genomics and Polity, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Human Genetics; Chair of the Ethics Working Party of the International Stem Cell Forum; Co-Chair of the Sampling/ELSI Committee of the 1000Genomes Project and a Member of the Scientific Steering Committee of the International Cancer Genome Consortium.
