Eligibility Dr. Mark Nickerson, a world-renowned pharmacologist, joined the University of Manitoba in 1954 and was appointed the first Professor and Head of the Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics. He developed a modern course in Pharmacology and Therapeutics, and established it as an important discipline in the undergraduate medical curriculum. Dr. Nickerson recruited several world-class pharmacologists over a short period of time to establish the Department as a leader both nationally and internationally in the field of Pharmacology and Therapeutics. He was the primary driving force in the design and construction of a new building for Pharmacology, The Chown Building, which opened in 1965, and remains the home of the Department. This studentship has been established as a lasting tribute to his energy and vision in developing the discipline of Pharmacology and Therapeutics in Canada. The available annual interest from this fund will be used to provide an entrance studentship to a student who:
  • is enrolled in the Post Graduate Medical Education Program, specifically in the Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics, in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Manitoba;
  • is the most academically deserving student entering the graduate studies program in a given calendar year.

  • If in a given calendar year, upon the recommendation of the selection committee, there is no acceptable recipient the studentship will not be awarded. The value of this award will be adjusted on a regular basis to reflect the income generated from the endowment.
