Monica Maly and Paolo Dominelli

Monica Maly and Paolo Dominelli, both in Kinesiology and Health Sciences, were two of 23 Waterloo researchers to receive funding from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation's John R. Evans Leaders Fund (JELF) program.

Monica Maly is the recipient of just under $80,000 for “Human Motion Analyses to Predict and Treat Osteoarthritis.” Her project is focused on developing biomechanically sound physical activity guidelines for adults with the most common forms of arthritis that are associated with aging. Maly uses biomechanical methods to evaluate the impact of physical activity on joint health.

Paolo Dominelli is the recipient of more than $125,000 for “Next Generation Fire Safety: Grounded in science, embracing population diversity.” The project’s objective is to combine expertise in fire engineering, exercise physiology and artificial intelligence to develop a companion that would be a scientifically grounded life safety system designed for a range of populations.

Congratulations to both!
