MRM McGill Engineering Doctoral Awards (MEDA)

Engineers play a critical role in optimizing and manufacturing stem cell-based therapies and other regenerative medicine products. With support from the Faculty of engineering, the MRM Network is awarding MRM-MEDAs for fall 2020 and winter 2021.

The objective of the MRM-MEDA joint call is to support interdisciplinary collaboration between engineers and other MRM Network members.


  • The main supervisor must be a member of the MRM and hold an appointment with the Faculty of Engineering.
  • As it is a recruitment award, it can only be offered to incoming students (current McGill students are not eligible).
  • After being awarded an MRM-MEDA, the student will have to become a member of the MRM and to register in the Faculty of Engineering (Departments: Bioengineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering & Applied Mechanics, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mining & Materials Engineering).
  • A cGPA of 3.5 is a minimum required for the student to be eligible.



  • Standard MEDA amounts and supervisor contributions as described on the website of the Faculty of Engineering.
  • Only one application per laboratory will be allowed by competition.
  • The MRM Network must be acknowledged in any publication including data generated during the course of the funded project.



Applicants must provide by email the following:

  • Name of the supervisor
  • Name of the department of affiliation within the Faculty of Engineering
  • Student’s transcript (including cGPA on the McGill 4.00 scale) & Student’s CV
  • Abstract of the planned research (max. 500 words + 1 figure)


Deadline for application is June 15, 2020 for Fall 2020 competition (admission may start in Fall 2020 or Winter 2021)



A dedicated committee composed of members of the MRM and members of the Faculty of Engineering will judge the applications as follow:

  • The proposed research is aligned with the mission of the MRM.
  • The proposed research will foster collaborations with other MRM members.
  • Student excellence and research potential based on academic and research excellence.
