Prestigious posts: Canada Research Chair appointments amplify Memorial's cutting-edge research reputation
A $2.4-million investment by the Government of Canada for three new Canada Research Chairs will accelerate Memorial’s international reputation for innovative multidisciplinary research benefiting Newfoundland and Labrador and beyond.
Dr. Max Liboiron has received a national honour for her leading-edge research and community engagement.
Memorial is the national leader among Canada’s medical universities when it comes to corporate research income growth over a five-year period. That’s according to new data released on Oct. 25. Research Infosource Inc. states that from fiscal years 2013-17, Memorial ranked No. 1 in growth, with an increase of 160.2 per cent.
Research ranging from developing sustainable road pavements for harsh Canadian climates to evolutionary drivers of variation in bat migration are among more than 60 projects receiving roughly $8.8 million from the Government of Canada.
Memorial’s reputation as a national and international post-secondary leader is further bolstered by new data released this fall.
Applications are being accepted for a lucrative research award for early-career researchers.
The Terra Nova Young Innovator award is valued at up to $50,000. It recognizes and supports outstanding faculty members whose research is particularly innovative and whose specific proposal has real potential to make a significant impact on society.
