Dr. Ilker Hacihaliloglu and Dr. Julie Robillard receive 2023 NSERC Discovery Research Program Grants

The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada is investing more than $514 million over five years through the Discovery Research Program. This funding will offer recipients the stability and freedom to pursue promising research avenues as they emerge to build the foundation for innovation and economic growth.

The NSERC Discovery Grants program supports ongoing programs of research with long-term goals rather than a single short-term project or collection of projects. These grants recognize the creativity and innovation that are at the heart of all research advances. Discovery Launch Supplements provide timely resources to support early career researchers (ECRs) as they establish a Discovery Grant-funded research program.
