Congratulations to Brandon Edwards, Frazer Seymour, and Nic Durish – all have recently been awarded funding to support their research projects.
Brandon Edwards has received an Arthur D. Latornell Undergraduate Travel Grant, and a Waterbird Society Travel Grant to cover expenses associated with attending the 27th International Ornithological Congress and the Waterbird Society 42nd Annual Meeting to be held in Vancouver, British Columbia in August. Brandon has submitted abstracts to speak at both events.
Frazer Seymour and Nic Durish have both been awarded funding to support their research in Rigolet, Nunatsiavut through Polar Knowledge Canada’s Northern Scientific Training Program. Frazer and Nic are both working on the community-led eNuk health and environment monitoring program – improving and expanding the pilot program while integrating it with the RightMesh wireless mobile mesh platform. Nic and Frazer join several eNuk team members from Dr Sherilee Harper’s lab in the Department of Population Medicine who have also been awarded funding through the Northern Scientific Training Program, including Alex Sawatzky, David Borish, and Jacqueline Middleton.
Congratulations to all. These awards speak to the quality and importance of the work that you are doing.
