The CFI has awarded $1,212,279 in funding for five Dalhousie researchers. The funds come from the Leaders Opportunity Fund which helps universities attract and retain top researchers. With this program, universities can put together "competitive packages of research support that are essential to attract today's best research talent."
The funded projects include:
- The Impact of Oceanic Microbial Communities on Marine Biogeochemistry, Now and in the Future ($712,409), Julie LaRoche
- Child Health and Perioperative Care Laboratory ($124,870), Jill Chorney
- Establishment of the Cardiovascular Neuroscience and Exercise Physiology Laboratory at Dalhousie University ($125,000), Derek Kimmerly
- Infrastructure to Examine Basic and Applied Neurophysiology and Rehabilitation Post-Stroke ($125,000), Shaun Boe
- Inorganic Polyphosphate of Mammalian Mitochondria: Its Metabolism and Role in Regulation of Cell Death ($125,000), Evgeny Pavlov
CFI investments provide vital infrastructure in communities across the country and create opportunities for leveraging the work being undertaken by our enterprising researchers. Cutting-edge research facilities are magnets that attract the best talent from around the world, allowing them to work with business and train a new generation of Canadian researchers and innovators." - Dr. Gilles G.
