Congratulations to Jeffrey Downey, Ph.D. student of Dr. Maziar Divangahi, who is this year’s recipient of the Gordon A. Maclachlan Convocation Prize. This prize is awarded annually by GPS to the most outstanding graduate receiving a Ph.D. degree during the academic year in any discipline of the Biological Sciences or Health Sciences. The winner is selected from candidates nominated by eligible departments, based on the quality of their academic records, the scholarly significance of their research and the excellence of their theses and other publications.

This prize was established in 1990, with gifts from individuals and faculties, in recognition and appreciation of Professor Gordon A. Maclachlan’s 10 years of service to McGill as Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research and Vice Principal (Research).
