Brad Wallace February 11, 2015 McGill gets boatload of cash from NSERC. For science of course. Brad Wallace February 11, 2015 10 projects in all, totalling $4.7M. Congrats to all who received grants. Among the McGill projects being funded is one focused on developing environmentally friendly building products, called “eco-bricks”, from incineration by-products, namely, heat, ash residues and carbon dioxide. Also funded is a project to develop portable, ultrasensitive biosensors capable of rapidly detecting disease-relevant markers, enabling early-stage disease diagnosis and timely treatment. A complete listing of projects and their descriptions is included below.
