Aneil Agrawal awarded Steacie Fellowship


Congratulations Aneil

Professor Aneil Agrawal has been awarded NSERC's EWR Steacie Fellowship. Aneil was recognized as "one of the world’s most promising evolutionary biologists" who "is conducting ground-breaking experiments that put longstanding theories to the test." More about his research on the evolution of sex and on how mutations enter and are removed from populations can be found in a Q&A with Aneil: http://news.utoronto.ca/meet-aneil-agrawal-leading-evolutionary-biologist

Steacie Fellowships are awarded to enhance the career development of outstanding young university faculty. Fellows are relieved of teaching and administrative duties for two years, so that they can devote all their time and energy to research. In recognition of the award’s prestige and the increased time available for research, fellows also receive a research grant of $250,000
