January 24, 2008

The Nasivvik Centre, a research project co-directed by Trent and Laval Universities, has received $1.76 million in research funding from the Canadian Institutes for Health Research.  The funds will be used to develop expertise among Inuit and other young researchers to address health and environment issues in the north.  In the past, most Arctic research has been directed by southern-based scientists.
