Four researchers at the University of Waterloo are receiving $250,000 each from the Government of Canada’s recently launched New Frontiers in Research Fund. Rolled out in 2018, the New Frontiers in Research Fund supports high-risk, high-reward, and interdisciplinary research by helping early career researchers make great discoveries in their fields.
Announced today by the Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science and Sport, at Laurentian University, Waterloo’s researchers are the first of 157 early careers researchers to receive this funding.
The researchers who will receive funding are:
Christine Dow (Geography and Environmental Management): Wireless probes for subglacial analyses of surging glaciers
Kevin Musselman (Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering): Laser assembly of next-generation theranostic agents for cancer imaging and treatment
Christine Muschik (Physics and Astronomy): Qfund: Quantum simulations of fundamental interactions with artificial intelligence
Arash Arami (Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering): Identification of neuromuscular control impairment, towards optimal and personalized rehabilitation paradigms
