Gillies Awarded Florence Bucke Science Prize

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!
