Mac celebrates service on Founderís Day

Abstract:
Instead of the usual, single Founder's Day keynote speaker, four different McGill luminaries treated the audience at Centennial Hall to presentations. Dr. Brian Ward, Associate Director of the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (Fundamental Science), and Co-director of the McGill Vaccine Evaluation Centre, debunked myths about vaccines. Prof. Peter Grutter, Associate Dean of Research and Graduate Education at the Faculty of Science, discussed the potential benefits of nanotechnology. McGill School of Environment student and activist Jonathan Glencross discussed sustainability in general and the McGill Sustainable Projects Fund in particular. And final speaker Margaret Somerville, Samuel Gale Professor of Law, Professor in the Faculty of Medicine, and Founding Director of the Centre for Medicine, Ethics and Law at McGill, delivered a presentation entitled, "The Ethics upside of the climate change downside: Searching for a shared ethics."
