Chemical and Biological Engineering Professor Vikram Yadav is part of a multi-disciplinary UBC research team that has received NSERC CREATE funding this June for their project, Ecosystem Services, Commercialization Platforms and Entrepreneurship (ECOSCOPE). The project is led by UBC Microbiology Prof. Steven Hallam.
NSERC Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) grants prepare students and postdoctoral fellows for careers in industry, government and academia through value-added professional and personal skills training.
This is the second NSERC CREATE collaboration involving a CHBE faculty. In 2014, NSERC CREATE announced funding for NanoMat of which CHBE Dr. David Wilkinson is a Principal Investigator.
