St. FX researchers get money to study human health

The press release is actually PR for the minister, so I won't even mention his name. That said, it's nice to see the money flow. 

Funding of $867,500 will go to researchers and students at StFX, including Dr. Daniel Kane. Dr. Kane is receiving $120,000 to determine the effects of increased energy demand associated with physical exercise on skeletal muscle mitochondrial function, which has been linked to human health and disease, and the aging process. Specifically, Dr. Kane’s research will examine how muscle mitochondria (the powerhouses of the cell) are affected by things known to alter metabolism, such as exercise, hormones and drugs.
