Human Biology Program Awards | 2016 Recipients

The Human Biology Program is delighted to announce our inaugural Human Biology Program Awards. These awards, to be issued every June, are part of the new tradition to celebrate achievement in our Human Biology community.  The students listed below have demonstrated through their academic success and their contributions to the program their eagerness to learn and develop new ways of researching and learning in the life sciences at the University of Toronto. HMB is committed to providing students with an academically rich and multidisciplinary experience to undergraduate students, and through generous donations to the Director’s Excellence Fund for Human Biology, the program is now able to offer awards to honour academic achievement and leadership initiative.
