Twenty-five future research stars receive support from the Foundation of the Stars

Montreal, April 11, 2011 – The CHU Sainte-Justine Research Center recently hosted the Foundation of the Stars’ 5th official bursary award ceremony for Master’s, doctoral and post-doctoral students. Three committees made up of 26 researchers evaluated the winners of the awards using strict criteria including their academic records, awards, bursaries, publishing records and the promising nature of their research project.

These bursaries are going to make it possible for them to advance our knowledge in key areas for the Center’s six research axes, including leukemia, anxiety disorders, Tourette’s syndrome, bone marrow and cord blood transplantation, scoliosis, epilepsy, the use of medications during pregnancy, etc.

During the ceremony, the Executive Director of the CHU Sainte-Justine, Dr. Fabrice Brunet, pointed out that “the partnership between the Foundation of Stars and the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation contributes in an essential way to the vitality of academic life at our institution.”

For Dr. Rouleau, Director of the Research Center, “the contribution of the Foundation of Stars and the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation goes beyond the financial. Success in this competition allows many of our students to obtain a bursary from a recognized granting agency and the Center to nurture and invest in the next generation of scientists.”

For Anièle Lecoq, President and Executive Director of the Sainte-Justine UHC Foundation, “the Foundation of Stars is a leading partner, not only in the promotion of our know-how, but also in implementing the tools our researchers require for them to excel in their work.”

Two award recipients were also able to attest to the positive impact these awards had on their careers, promoting intellectual freedom through this financial support. “Our Foundation has been a key partner in the development of the next generation for many years and rest assured that we are making every effort to sustain this collaboration,” added Michel Lanteigne, Chairman of the Board of the Foundation of Stars.
