Minister Duncan visits the Farncombe.

On June 23, The Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science, visited McMaster to announce the 2016 NSERC Discovery grants and our Farncombe colleague, Dr. Lesley McNeil, was featured as she was also awarded a Discovery Accelerator Supplement grant.  Minister Duncan toured the McNeil lab to hear about Lesley’s fascinating work with worms (and bacteria!).  Members of the Surette lab also had a chance to meet and talk with her.  The Minister was engaging and genuinely interested in hearing about the microbiome and our collaborative research with worms and bugs!
