Second Canada Research Chair lecture set
The second lecture in a new series highlighting the explorations and discoveries of the University of Guelph’s Canada Research Chairs will be held Nov. 19.
Geography professor Rob de Loë will speak on “Water Governance in Canada: Lessons from a Study of Local Capacity” at 12:30 p.m. in Room 103 of Rozanski Hall. Prof. de Loë was named a Tier II Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Rural Water Management in 2001. He is studying rural water quality and watershed management.
The lecture series, launched in October, is intended to raise awareness of the CRC program. The lectures are aimed at a general audience and feature the knowledge gained and the new applications being developed by chair holders. Three lectures will be held each semester in the fall and winter.
Biomedical scientist and CRC holder Jonathan LaMarre, who is leading a laboratory inquiry on the regulation of individual genes, tissues and species and the role they play in disease states, will present the Dec. 3 lecture.
Twenty-three U of G professors hold prestigious Canada Research Chairs, a program created by the federal government to help universities retain and attract world-class faculty. The lecture series is intended to allow the chairs to share their work with the University and broader community.
