Three UVic Canada Research Chairs renewed

Social Sciences, Science

The search for new anti-cancer drugs, a deeper understanding of the economics of climate change, and fresh insights into the complex mathematics behind constantly changing systems and processes in our lives—these will continue to preoccupy the minds of three UVic researchers in the next several years thanks to recent renewals of their Canada Research Chairs.

The renewed chairs are chemist Fraser Hof (Supramolecular and Medicinal Chemistry), economist Cornelis “Case” van Kooten (Environmental Studies and Climate) and mathematician Ian Putnam (Operator Algebras and Dynamical Systems).

UVic currently has 38 Canada Research Chairs.
