Dr. Mandy Turner receives Governor General's Academic Gold Medal

Dr. Mandy Turner is the 2021 recipient of one of two Governor General’s Academic Gold Medals awarded by Queen’s University.  Dr. Turner completed her PhD program in April, which was carried out under the mentorship of Drs. Rachel Holden and Michael Adams.

The Governor General’s Academic Medal was first awarded in 1873 by the Earl of Dufferin and has since become one of the most prestigious awards that a student in a Canadian educational institution can receive. The Governor General of Canada continues this tradition of encouraging scholarship across the nation and recognizing outstanding students. The Gold Medal is reserved for academic excellence at the graduate level.

The Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences congratulates Mandy on this significant acknowledgement of the excellence of her research.  We wish her all the best in her future endeavors!
