May 14, 2019 - Robarts scientist Corey Baron, PhD, has received funding as part of the federal government's New Frontiers in Research Fund. His project received $250,000/two years and will look at the microstructural imaging of concussion.
He is one of five Western University researchers to receive the funding.
“Our government’s vision is for our researchers to take risks and be innovative,” said Minister of Science and Sport Kirsty Duncan. “We want our scientists and students to have access to state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment, and we want the halls of academia to better reflect the diversity of Canada itself. This new fund will help us achieve that vision.”
A total of 157 researchers nationwide will receive support totaling $38 million in the Exploration stream of the New Frontiers in Research Fund, an initiative that invests in researchers with five years or less of experience since their first academic appointment.
