Congratulations to TRP student Craig Madho on winning the Roncari Book Prize at IMS50 Scientific Day! The Roncari Book Prize Honours the memory of Dr. Daniel Roncari. It is presented to a student who has contributed to the academic experiences of graduate students. IMS50 Scientific Day was created to highlight the achievements of students and teachers and to initiate an environment where the two groups can interact.  In honour of IMS’s 50thanniversary, events will be held all year long.

Craig is currently finishing up his capstone project with his group members which looks at how nutritional resources for cancer outpatients can be improved. At the TRP he is an active member of the student social committee and organizing students to fundraise for cancer research through participating in the Princess Margaret Ride to Conquer Cancer.

His leadership skills extend to the IMS community. He is the co-president of the Institute of Medical Science Students Association and co-founder of the groups’ mentorship program. The program’s aim to create a stronger student community. Craig is also a member of the Student Alumni Faculty Engagement committee and contributes to events such as UofT Talks.

In recognition of his contribution to enriching the graduate community, Craig is a proud recipient of two more awards at the University: The Graduate Community Development Fund award (GCDF) and the Gordon Cressy Student Leadership Award.

The GCDF award recognizes students who go above and beyond in making contributions to the graduate experience. The award was created in partnership with the School of Graduate Studies at the University of Toronto.

The Gordon Cressy Student Leadership Award is given to students who volunteer not just at the University, but in the surrounding community as well. Madho was only 1 of 8 students part of the Institute of Medical Science to be given the award

Our heartful congratulations to Craig!
