Congratulations to the 2016 Schulich Equipment AID Grant recipients

Ten applications have been funded through the latest Schulich Equipment AID (Advancement, Improvement, Development) Grant competition.

The Schulich Equipment AID 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 competition was on repairing/replacing of aging equipment within the faculty.
