Professor Jane Howe (MSE, ChemE) is among five U of T Engineering researchers to receive funding for new research tools through the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s (CFI) John R. Evans Leaders Fund (JELF). The fund provides researchers with foundational tools and infrastructure, enabling research discovery and innovation.
Howe received funding for an advanced scanning electron microscope for in situ and liquid-phase electron microscopy study.
“Foundational research infrastructure, coupled with world-class researchers, leads to groundbreaking discoveries,” says Ramin Farnood (ChemE), U of T Engineering’s Vice-Dean of Research. “With the support of CFI, our U of T Engineering researchers can continue to be leaders in their field and make positive, vital contributions to our society and the economy.”
Funding was awarded to 33 projects across the University of Toronto, totalling more than $9.5 million.
