UVic receives funding to establish wet lab to support oncology, precision health, and more

July 22, 2021
The University of Victoria has received over $536K from the Government of Canada to create the Centre for Advanced Materials & Related Technology (CAMTEC) BioMedical Core. The funding will be used to establish a Class II biosafety facility with specialized equipment to support initiatives in a variety of areas, such as oncology, precision health, apparel manufacturing, and water treatment. It will be shared by industry partners that do not have access to these types of equipment to facilitate their growth. “The availability of these resources in a shared, industry-focused research environment will contribute to substantial growth in the life sciences sector in British Columbia,” said CAMTEC BioMedical Core director Jeremy Wulff.
