Feedback for Memorial’s Innovation Strategy extended to Friday, Aug. 7
It’s time to nominate distinction. The deadline for the Marilyn Harvey Award to Recognize the Importance of Research Ethics is Aug. 17.
The Innovation Strategy is intended to guide Memorial in creating what it hopes to be one of the most progressive innovation environments in Canada. It is supported by Memorial’s vision to “be one of the most distinguished public universities in Canada and beyond, and … fulfill its special obligation to the people of Newfoundland and Labrador”.
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.
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.
Memorial researchers wishing to apply for the Atlantic Innovation Fund (AIF) should contact Research Grant and Contract Services (RGCS) prior to drafting a proposal.
Less than 20 per cent of applied medical research is translated into a possible device, medication or therapy; the launch of the new Translational and Personalized Medicine Initiative (TPMI) aims to change that by bringing bench research to the patient’s bedside.
