Memorial wants to improve its research data management services with a little help from the university community.


The Bruneau Centre for Excellence in Choral Music was created through a visionary $1-million gift from Drs. Jean and Angus Bruneau.

A specialized research centre is expanding its annual grants competition while welcoming a world-renowned Canadian musician as its conductor-in-residence in 2017.

The Bruneau Centre for Excellence in Choral Music promotes and fosters research and community projects focused on the impact choral singing can have on individuals and communities. It is based in the School of Music and managed by a board of directors consisting of individuals from the wider community and the university.


Dr. Trevor Bell

For the second time in three years, Dr. Trevor Bell has been honoured with the coveted Arctic Inspiration Prize (AIP), becoming the only person from Memorial University to receive the accolade twice.

Dr. Bell, a noted field scientist and geographer, is one of three recipients of this year’s AIP who will share the $1.5-million national honour often known as the Nobel Prize of the North.


The Canada Foundation for Innovation has published the new book Innovation.

$54 million. 146 researchers. 20 years.

In the past two decades, the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) has played an integral role in transforming Memorial-led research projects by providing critical funding for infrastructure, which has helped build a strong dynamic research community in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The national funding body celebrates its 20th anniversary in February 2017. This fall, it published a new commemorative book, Innovation, which features a Memorial research study.


The late Dr. Richard Marceau

There were times, in the past three years, when Greg Horner would often join his neighbour on his back deck to quietly savour their scenic ocean vista and the awes of nature.

Shortly after meeting Dr. Richard Marceau in 2013, the two became fast friends. They shared stories. Shared meals. And shared laughs at their Conception Bay South homes.

Those are the moments Mr. Horner cherishes most, these days.

His friend – and Memorial’s vice-president (research) – passed away suddenly overnight on Monday, Sept. 26.
