Plan to enhance UWindsor research culture

The University of Windsor will further integrate research into the student learning experience under a plan approved by Senate at its February 10 meeting.

The Strategic Research Plan will extend over a five-year period ending in December 2016. It provides a framework for the development of plans related to research and creative activity specific to each faculty as well as detailed plans for their implementation.

UWindsor research projects draw support from cancer centre foundation

Three research projects involving a total of eight researchers from the University of Windsor, Windsor Regional Cancer Centre, Windsor Regional Hospital, and McGill University will share a total of $206,000 in funding from the Windsor & Essex County Cancer Centre Foundation.

The grants are made under the 2011 Seeds4Hope program, which supports innovative local cancer research.

The foundation’s president, Norma Brockenshire, said she was proud to support the work of the medical and research community.
