In September 2019, Nobel Laureate Martin Chalfie visited universities and research institutes in Canada as part of the Nobel Prize Inspiration Initiative. He met students and researchers at Ryerson University, the University of Toronto, Queen’s University and McGill University, where he shared his journey towards the Nobel Prize.
The Nobel Prize Inspiration Initiative (NPII) is a global programme designed to help Nobel Laureates share their inspirational stories and insights. By taking Nobel Laureates on visits to universities and research centres around the world, and by capturing their thoughts on video, the Initiative seeks to bring the Laureates into closer contact with the worldwide scientific community, and especially with an audience of young scientists. NPII Canada was delivered in partnership with AstraZeneca. For more information please visit: www.nobelprize.org/npii.
