Minister of Science
Kelvin students were invited to share their research on polar bears with the Federal Minister of Science. Ciaran Woods is one of the student leaders and he presented this research to the Honourable Kristy Duncan. The students have been working with Dr. Jane Waterman with her WhiskerPrint identification software and have been travelling up to Churchill for the last six years to study polar bears. The focus of the study is to use this non-invasive identification method to track the bears over the years. The students can then determine and track the body condition of these bears. This project is supported and funded through the Universtiy of Manitoba NSERC PromoScience grant.
The Honourable Kirsty Duncan was at the University of Manitoba to announce the new grants offered through the Government of Canada through the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI). Infrastructure funds are being invested for the new Biomaterials and Nanomedicine Laboratory at the University of Manitoba. More than $554 million for new labs and equipment is being invested across the country to help Canadian researchers discover, innovate, and train the next generation of scientists for the jobs of tomorrow.
