Profile

Recently, McGill’s John Bergeron, one of Canada’s preeminent cell biologists, was invited to be a judge at the Canada-Wide Science Festival (CWSF). Bergeron jump at the chance because it closed a circle over 50 years in the making. “The CWSF started my career at McGill,” says Bergeron. “In 1961, I won the Science Fair at the University of Montreal and that paid for my first year of McGill.”
