Biomechanics researcher awarded investment for infrastructure

Friday, April 15, 2016

Four University of Waterloo researchers received funding from the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s (CFI) John R. Evans Leaders Fund today.

Among the researchers benefiting from new CFI-funded infrastructure is the Department of Kinesiology’s Steven Fischer who will receive $100,000 to support the investigation of biomechanical determinants of occupational performance.

The fund is designed to help universities attract and retain the best and brightest researchers from around the world by giving them state-of-the-art research tools.
