"Perhaps the greatest personal impact was the sense of self-worth that the Prize gave me. But connected to that was the delight I felt in seeing the great pride in people around me: those people who have supported my career and helped me to become a scientist. The Prize is a recognition of many efforts and I have used it in talking to other young scientists - mostly women - to illustrate the support system present in Canada and the rewards possible. "

Dr. Verena Tunnicliffe - University of Victoria, 1993
