Prof. Cecile Malardier-Jugroot, as Vice-Principal Research at the Royal Military College of Canada, promotes research excellence in the rich and diverse environment of this Canadian Federal Institution and University. The Research Office supports and encourages all inquiry-based research while promoting RMC’s role as Leader in Defence Research. Dr. Malardier-Jugroot was appointed VPR in July 2020 and is a faculty member of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. Dr. Malardier-Jugroot was also Head of the Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at RMC from 2017-20.

Dr. Malardier-Jugroot received her PhD from McGill University in Materials Science and held a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of California at Berkeley in the field of protein folding and water dynamics before joining the Royal Military College of Canada as an Assistant Professor in 2007. Her research expertise is recognized in the field of nanomaterials for application in targeted drug delivery for cancer treatment and development of new materials as nanoreactors for applications in new energy sources. She holds a Canada Research Chair Tier2 in Self-Assembly and Nanomaterials.

Prof. Cecile Malardier-Jugroot is a very active member of the organizing committee of “Science meets Parliament”: a program presented in partnership between the Office of Canada’s Chief Science Advisor and the Canadian Science Policy Centre. The program is aimed at strengthening the connections between Canada's scientific and political stakeholders.
