Dr. Joanna Wilson Named University Scholar

Six McMaster professors have been named 2019 University Scholars, an award that recognizes the achievements of mid-career researchers. Recipients have distinguished themselves as international scholars and have demonstrated a commitment to the discovery, communication and preservation of knowledge, excellence in education and pedagogy, and to serving local and global communities. Each University Scholar will receive $15,000 each year of the award (up to $60,000), provided by the provost and vice-president academic and the recipient’s dean. The 2019 University Scholars are:
  • Thomas Adams, associate professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering
  • James MacKillop, professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences
  • Michael McGillion, associate professor in the School of Nursing
  • Joanna Wilson, associate professor in the Department of Biology

Scientists uncover crucial biological circuits

Tiny microscopic worms, invisible to the naked eye, are helping scientists to better understand an extraordinarily complex biological pathway that connects fat to overall health and aging in humans.

A team of biologists from McMaster studying these worms called C. elegans, or nematodes, has found that the regulation of lipid production, and the delicate balance of too much or too little fat, is crucial to healthy living.
