RES’EAU-WaterNET Investigator Receives Funding Award from China

RES’EAU-WaterNET investigator Dr. Asit Mazumder was recently awarded up to $900,000 in research funding through China’s Recruitment Program of Foreign Experts (RPFE) program. The RPFE recruits non-ethnic Chinese experts “who are strategic scientists, leading experts in science and technology, or internationalized innovative teams capable of achieving critical technological breakthroughs, advancing the high-tech industries and promoting new disciplines” according to its website.
 
“I am honoured to have been awarded this grant, and proud to bring some Canadian expertise to China,” says Dr. Mazumder. "The research I will do there is closely related to my work at RES’EAU, looking at algal toxins in source water and links to neuro-degenerative symptoms in rural populations."
