MUHC task force to focus on pediatrics

Some physicians and staff at the Montreal Children's Hospital are concerned about how their hospital is fitting into the McGill University Health Centre. A new task force aims to see how things are working out.

Schools need help

In a new report, the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal warns that the city's universities are in danger of sliding into mediocrity. Their prescription? Better government funding, higher tuition fees, and more flexibility from the universities themselves.

Behind the masks: pediatric anesthetists

There is a worrisome shortage of anesthetists who specialize in children. Given the critical tasks they perform, it's a shortage the health care system can't cope with for long.

Mapping the growing brain

What goes on inside kids' brains anyway? Researchers at the Montreal Neurological Institute are spearheading an ambitious multi-year effort to find out. The end result will be the world's first pediatric neuroanatomy atlas.

Tales of the city

Urban geographer Brian Ray specializes in examining how different groups — immigrant women and gay men, for instance — establish a place for themselves in major metropolitan areas.

Packed house for Payette

Astronaut Julie Payette, McGill's most recent graduate to go into space, returned to her alma mater with tales about the Space Station Mir and zero gravity bathroom etiquette.

News from the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research

Students Jeff Heaton, Mathieu Soulié and Ryan McGrath take to their shovels to clear the way for McGill skaters. With or without hockey sticks, this new ice rink, located beside the broomball rink on the lower campus downtown "is for everyone," says Heaton who came up with the idea to reinstate the McGill community rink. The rink was made and is maintained by Facilities Management while financial support has come from the Principal's Office and the Students' Society of McGill University, among other campus agencies.
