The Microrobotics Lab has received funding for equipment and infrastructure through the John R. Evans Leaders Fund. This funding is from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and will be used to further develop our capabilities for microrobotics research.
“The prestigious CGS Program was established in 2003 by the Government of Canada, with scholarships being awarded through competition by the three federal granting agencies (CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC). The CGS Program aims to allow a greater number of excellent students to pursue graduate studies in Canada and ensure a reliable supply of highly qualified personnel to meet the needs of Canada’s knowledge economy.”
Congratulations to Patrick Ryan (Master student) for his success!
