KINGSTON – Two faculty members at Queen’s University have just received large grants to further their research. The three year grants – totaling one million dollars — will support collaborative research for two projects. One aims to protect Canada’s arctic eco-system …. And the other is to develop new water purification technology. Researchers will use state of the art ‘genomic technology’ to find out how climate change affects vulnerable seabird species in the arctic.
John Fisher/Interim VP of Research at Queen’s:
“I think these are both really leading projects in two different areas. The portable water side is allowing Professor Jessop and his collaborators and his industry to re-jig a process he’s familiar with and scale it for drinking water.”
