Congratulations to the IDIGH Research Day oral and poster presentation winners!

Dr. Évelyne Vinet

Congratulations to Dr. Évelyne Vinet receives the CRA’s Young Investigator Award. The CRA award recognizes a young Canadian Investigator who has contributed significant, original research in rheumatology. The candidate must be a CRA member in good standing and must be no more than seven years into becoming established as an Independent Investigator, who has performed outstanding, landmark, original research (clinical or basic science) in rheumatology as judged by peers and citations. For more information read the full article on rimuhc.ca or mcgill.ca.

Dr. Marcel Behr

Congratulations to Dr. Marcel Behr who has been awarded a 3-year grant by Cystic Fibrosis Canada for his project entitled: “Non-tuberculous mycobacteria in CF - new chemistries for old targets”.

Also, congratulations to two students in Dr. Behr’s lab who earned CF Canada studentships in the same competition! Nowrin Hoque is a Masters student who previously worked in the laboratory of Dr. Dao Nguyen. Nowrin is looking at whether new drugs developed to fight tuberculosis can also benefit patients with disease due to related non-tuberculosis mycobacteria (NTM), more commonly seen in CF patients. Jaryd Sullivan is also a Masters student. His project project involves developing a new method to determine whether drugs bind to the bacterial target, in collaboration with the Structural Genomics Consortium. The goal of his project is to discover novel compounds that can be used to combat NTM infections in CF patients.
