Memorial University officially opened the Craig L. Dobbin Genetics Research Centre May 1.

Newfoundland and Labrador’s original gene pool and relatively closed environment provides unique opportunities to study genetic patterns and certain diseases. This state-of-the-art genetics research centre builds significant capacity for Memorial researchers to continue their important work in this area.


Deadline for Terra Nova Young Innovator Award extended to Monday, May 25.

USSIP provides students with the opportunity to carry out a 13-week (or 16-week) research development work term under the supervision of a full-time faculty member or regular term appointee.

Applications are now being accepted for the Vice-Presidents’ Council Cross-Campus Initiatives Fund and Conference Fund. Proposals for both applications must be submitted by Monday, Feb. 16, 2015.
