ON invests $77M in scientific research

March 16, 2017

Ontario has announced that it will support 75 projects at leading institutions across the province to help scientists discover new technologies, treatments and cures for diseases while creating high-quality jobs for people in the province. The announcement was made earlier this week at Queen’s University, which will receive $4.5M of the funding to explore cost-effective and environmentally friendly ways to generate renewable energy. An ON release notes that other initiatives supported by the funding will work to develop new health technologies, support modern facilities and equipment, and promote the use of genomics to solve health issues such as common childhood cancers.
