Michael Taylor one of Canada's top 40 under 40

SickKids' Dr. Michael Taylor, Neurosurgeon, Neurosurgery; Principal Investigator, Brain Tumour Research Centre; and Scientist, Developmental & Stem Cell Biology, has been named one of Canada's Top 40 Under 40.

Established in 1995, Canada's Top 40 Under 40 celebrates the achievements of Canadians in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors who were under the age of 40 by Dec. 31, 2008. The 26 members of an independent advisory board choose the honorees from about 1,200 nominees through a selection process based on five criteria: vision and leadership; innovation and achievement; impact; growth and development strategy; and community involvement and contribution.
