Leading Stem Cell researcher receives prestigious L’Oreal UNESCO women in science award

Dr. Janet Rossant

One of Canada’s leading stem cell researchers Dr. Janet Rossant was one of five women internationally to receive the prestigious L’Oréal-UNESCO women in science award in March in Paris. A senior scientist at Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children, Rossant is being recognized for her contribution to the understanding of how tissues and organs are formed in the developing embryo – research that will help to combat birth defects and other serious medical conditions. “I hope to use this opportunity to encourage more girls globally to take up careers in science, math, engineering and medicine. The future is theirs to grasp,” said Rossant.
