The Nancy Simpson Scholarship in Genetics

Established in November 2004 by Nancy Simpson to recognize the best Masters or Ph.D. student at Queen’s University studying in a field of genetics. Open to Masters and Doctoral students registered in the School of Graduate Studies in any graduate program or department at Queen’s University whose research is in a field of genetics, including but not limited to molecular genetics, ethics in genetics, bioinformatics, behavioural genetics, evolutionary genetics and genomics.

As a professor of human genetics for 25 years at Queen's, I wish to encourage students to contribute to the above discipline of genetics particularly with an emphasis on research that will ultimately be of help to cure or alleviate human disease.
