Professor Fábio Petrillo, one of the members of LIF, has recently earned a research grant from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). The Discovery Grants (DG) program supports a five year program of research within natural sciences and engineering. This highly competitive yearly competition is generally considered as one of the financial cornerstones of a professor’s research program.
NSERC is the largest funder of scientific research in Canada. With funding from the Government of Canada, NSERC supports the world-class research of over 41,000 talented students and professors at universities and colleges across the country with an annual budget of $1.1 billion.
Congratulations to Professor Petrillo!
