Dr. Stephen H. Scott, of the Queen's Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences, has recently earned a grant from the Ontario Research Fund -- Research Excellence. He is receiving $3,999,999 to pursue work on his project, "Translating knowledge on brain function into next generation technologies for neurological assessment." This project uses robotic, eye-tracking and other advanced technologies and the expertise of several Ontario-based companies to unravel how the brain participates in sensory, motor and cognitive functions and how neurological disorders impact these processes.
Dr. Zongchao Jia, Professor and Canada Research Chair in Structural Biology of the Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences, has won a John R. Evans Leaders Fund (JELF) award from the Canada Foundation for Innovation. His project, "An Enhanced Protein Preparation and Structure-Function Characterization Facility," was approved in full for $112,000.
