Canada Research Chairs Symposium at Bannatyne campus

June 1, 2023 — 

On June 19 the Canada Research Chair (CRC) Symposium returns to Bannatyne campus for the final presentation of the 2023 school year. Hosted by the Vice-President (Research and International) Office, this sixth symposium will feature research themes from across UM Faculties, with presentations by six UM CRCs.

UM has an allocation of 50 CRCs funded by the Government of Canada in the areas of natural sciences and engineering, health sciences, and social sciences and humanities. CRCs are frequently recognized in Manitoba and around the world, for their leadership in wide-ranging fields, such as maternal and infant health, in Canada and the United States, and overseas in Uttar Pradesh, India.

“Researchers are motivated by the impacts of their work to improve lives of people in our communities, and around the world,” says Mario Pinto, Vice-President (Research and International). “These symposia are an opportunity to spark new and exciting collaborations across disciplines between researchers, students, and the wider community. I hope that everyone will join us for this thought-provoking look into the groundbreaking research taking place every day at UM.”
