    Eric Keske, PhD student in Crudden group, wins NSERC Post Doctoral Fellowship


    Eric was recently awarded a Post Doctoral Fellowship award from NSERC. This is a highly competitive program, and only a small number are awarded every year. Winners are selected based on their research skill and potential, as well as communication, interpersonal and leadership abilities. 

    While we’ll be sad to see Eric go after he defends in the spring, we are very excited that he will be working in the lab of Dr. Guy Lloyd-Jones at the University of Edinburgh. Congrats Eric!
