Donnelly Centre 2016 Annual Report
In 2016, we continued to make discoveries that have the potential to improve lives. At the same time, our scientists continued to reap prestigious awards and win competitive funding for their research, as well as train the next generation of researchers. None of this would be possible without the generous founding support from our donor Terrence Donnelly and others who donated gifts to support our science.
