Faculty of Science Research Fellows

In 2017, the Faculty of Science funded 2-year post-doctoral projects under the Faculty of Science Research Fellows program. The Research Fellows program is intended to provide direct support to develop and nurture strategic areas of research strength and potential within the Faculty. Of the 11  proposals submitted, four were funded: 
  • Alex Adronov, Chemistry & Chemical Biology, and collaborator, Yingfu Li, Department of Biochemistry, cross-appointed to Chemistry and Chemical Biology. Development of Chemical Sensors Based on Single-Walled Carbon Nanotube Conjugates with Aptamers
  • Nicholas Bock, Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour, and collaborator, Dr. Sheila Singh, Surgery and Biochemistry, Faculty of Health Science. Personalizing Medicine with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • Paul McNicholas, Mathematics & Statistics. Detecting Suspicious Online Behaviour by Clustering Big Data
  • Aimee Nelson, Kinesiology, and collaborators Michael Noseworthy, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering and Margaret Fahnestock, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences, Faculty of Health Sciences. Discovering the mechanisms that mediate exercise-induced neural plasticity.

We will report on the sucess of these programs in the coming years.
