Congratulations to two researchers from the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC): Don Sheppard, a member of the Infectious Diseases and Immunity in Global Health Program, received the Prize for Established Academics, and Tina Montreuil, a member of the Child Health and Human Development Program, was runner-up for the Prize for Emerging Researchers.

This included regularly sharing his expertise on COVID-19 with media in both official languages. Dr. Sheppard is also Chair of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology and Director of the McGill Interdisciplinary Initiative in Infection and Immunity at McGill University. Read more.
