The first recipients of the Canada 150 Research Chairs have been announced by Minister Duncan on Wednesday. Four new researchers will be bringing their labs and skills to Canadian Universities, a neuroscientist, a cell biologist, a computer scientist and a mathematician, three of whom are women. These appointments are just the first of an expected 25 appointments unveiled in the 2017 budget.
“This is a brain gain for Canada," Ms. Duncan said of the new hires. "These are promising, internationally renowned researchers."
