November 11, 2016

The Northern Ontario School of Medicine has received $5M from Bruce Power to perform health research with an emphasis on radiation and the environment in Northern Ontario. In addition to this funding, Bruce Power will renew the Bruce Power Chair in Radiation and Health at NOSM and provide a free, clean energy electric car charging station that will be open to the public, as well as an electric car for conducting research. The research performed with the $5M will measure the impact of low-dose radiation on health, the environmental impacts of radiation, the effects of radiation and diagnostic imaging on fetal programming, and the impact of radiation on Indigenous communities.
