Prof. Gillies has been awarded the Florence Bucke Science Prize. This prize was made available through an endowment of the late Florence Bucke who received a BA from Western University in 1926 and went on to teach in Fort Erie until 1971. As part of her endowment to Western, she created a prize to recognize and honour excellence in research. The Florence Bucke Science Prize is awarded annually to a faculty member who is 45 years of age or less, and is based on an assessment of the quality and importance of their research. The prize consists of a certificate, a $2000 award and public lecture which will take place during the week of April 17. Congratulations, Beth!
