Pfizer Research Award of Excellence

Congratulations to Dr. Christine McCusker, member of the Meakins-Christie Laboratories and Division Head, Pediatric Allergy and Immunology of the Montreal Children’s Hospital. Dr. McCusker is the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation 2020 recipient of the Pfizer Research Award of Excellence.

This award is given to a researcher from the Montreal Children’s Hospital community whose initiatives have made a unique and significant contribution to pediatric care.

Dr. McCusker is passionate about her work, which surely explains her success. Over the past few years, she and her team have cured children of allergies to tree nuts, milk and eggs thanks to a desensitization program she helped put in place. She has led her team to positive clinical research outcomes, advancing treatments and helping empower children with allergies.

“I love my job! I also get to play with kids and help reduce parents’ anxiety.”
