Biographical history

George John Millar received his BA from the University of Toronto in 1939, and worked at the Banting Institute from 1939-1941. He joined the air force in 1941 and carried out medical research for the RCAF until he was honourably discharged in 1943. Millar joined the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology at the University of Saskatchewan in 1946, and received his PhD from the U of T in 1950. One of his areas of research involved the chemistry and physiology of heparin, a substance which prevents coagulation of the blood and is useful in the treatment of thrombosis.
