Dr. David Rosenblatt, Holder, Dodd Q. Chu and Family Chair in Medical Genetics and Professor, Departments of Human Genetics, Medicine, Pediatrics, and Biology at McGill University, has been selected as the 2018 recipient of the Canadian College of Medical Geneticists (CCMG) Founders’ Award for Career Achievement.

The award is meant to recognize a CCMG member who has had an outstanding career in medical genetics in Canada or abroad. This award is named in honour of the visionary men and women (known as the “Committee of Seven”) who, along with 17 founding members, established the Canadian College of Medical Geneticists on January 13, 1976. Previously known as the Founders’ Award, it was officially renamed in 2017. In announcing his selection for the award, the CCMG noted Dr. Rosenblatt’s outstanding career across all domains of service, research, teaching, administration, and scholarly activity and highlighted that within the CCMG his presence has been steadfast and ongoing, from its earliest days until now and he remains an enthusiastic advocate for the profession of medical genetics, not only within Quebec but across the Canadian scientific community.
