Three University of Guelph professors have received over 2 million dollars in funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. Vice President of research, Malcom Campbell, says this underscores the high caliber of research conducted by the trio.
Professor Tami Martino gets over 900 thousand dollars for a five year study of how incorporating day-night rhythms, could improve treatment for heart attack patients.
Professor Jim Uniakie plans to use nano-particles to deliver genetic material to fight tumors.
He gets almost 700 thousand dollars over 4 years.
And Professor Jess Haines gets over 400 thousand dollars for a 4 year study, looking at how adjusting household routines, such as family meals, sleep, physical activity and screen time, will affect young children.
