Happy to announce our new CFI infrastructure grant! This funding will allow us to purchase necessary equipment to set up a state-of-the-art molecular biology and signal transduction facility at Queen's.
Six Queen’s University researchers have earned funding from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) John R. Evans Leaders Fund to enhance the infrastructure in their labs. The funding will allow for advanced research into cardiovascular disease, plant health, assistive technology, dark matter, neurological diseases and the oil and gas industry.
“Funding from the John R. Evans Leaders Fund is critical for keeping Queen’s on the leading edge of research,” says Dr. John Fisher, Interim Vice-Principal (Research). “New funding for infrastructure will enhance the capabilities of our laboratories and encourage new and advanced research programs at Queen’s. The Leader’s fund provides the means for our faculty to affect the quality of our lives and to better understand the world we live in.”
