Professor Jozef Nissimov awarded $100,000 in research infrastructure funding

Friday, February 25, 2022

Congratulations to Water Institute member Professor Jozef Nissimov from the Department of Biology, who has been awarded John R. Evans Leaders research infrastructure funding from the Government of Canada through the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI). This funding supports research leaders across Canada to ensure they have the labs and equipment they need to carry out world-class research and technology development.

Professor Nissimov was awarded $100,000 for the project ‘Experimental modelling of aquatic microbial hosts and their viruses’. This funding will be used to purchase a state-of-the-art photobioreactors system which will allow for precise experimental modelling of microalgal- and cyanobacterial- virus interactions, while simulating closely the environmental conditions of the natural aquatic habitat in which they are found.

Jozef“The system and its use will be at the core of my research program,” says Nissimov. “It will enable rapid advances to better understand the roles that different physicochemical parameters play in the prevalence of toxic harmful algal bloom-forming species, and how these species interact with their viruses in the context of climate change and eutrophication.”

This grant is one of eight awards given to researchers at the University of Waterloo. Congratulations Jozef!
