2017 Neil Mackenzie Mentorship Excellence Award

By September 26, 2017No Comments

Since 2015, the Centre for Blood Research (CBR) has offered an award to honour the memory of Neil Mackenzie and to recognize the mentorship excellence he provided within the CBR community. Nominations for this award are open to any member of the CBR (with the exception of PIs). CBR members nominate their colleagues and lab mates who exhibit excellence in mentorship, enthusiasm, positivity, and who go above and beyond, to inspire others in the lab environment. Nominators craft a 500-word essay describing how their nominee demonstrates a commitment to mentorship and the development of others.

A committee of Neil Mackenzie’s close friends and colleagues review all nominations for the award and are tasked with the difficult decision of choosing a winner who demonstrates the mentorship characteristics Neil embodied. This is a challenging process, given the many incredibly supportive and caring mentors at the CBR.
