Dr. Atanu Sarkar and Dr. Derek Wilton

Ordinarily Dr. Derek Wilton, a professor Earth Sciences, might not be expected to have much in common, with Dr. Atanu Sarkar, a public health physician in the Faculty of Medicine.

But a potential uranium mine in Labrador is bringing together these two very different researchers at Memorial.

Five Memorial-led research projects recently received a boost from the Research & Development Corporation (RDC). RDC is investing more than $475,000 in five research and development projects related to mineral exploration and development. The projects are aimed at enhancing exploration efforts, improving environmental mitigation strategies and strengthening R&D opportunities through the purchase of specialized equipment.
