Congratulations to the Schulich Equipment AID Grant recipients

We are pleased to announce that 11 applications have been funded through the Schulich Equipment AID (Advancement, Improvement, Development) Grant competition.  

The Schulich Equipment AID Grant program provides Schulich Medicine & Dentistry faculty with a mechanism to acquire, develop or improve equipment directly used for research that they cannot obtain through other funding channels. This program aims to also catalyze collaborative research for Schulich Medicine & Dentistry across many disciplines. The focus of this initial competition was on the repairing/replacing of ageing equipment within the faculty.

We expect to run this Schulich Equipment AID competition annually. Stay tuned for an announcement later in 2015.
