Research-driven solutions

Our world-leading experts are generating marine discoveries that ignite the economy and influence policy.


Axel Becke awarded NSERC’s Herzberg Medal

One of the most cited researchers in the world, Dr. Becke is the 2015 recipient of Canada’s most prestigious scientific research award for his success in advancing a computational method called the “density-functional theory” (DFT) of electronic structure. Today, there are few chemical computations that don’t, in some way, make use of his work — from drug discovery to cleaner energy.
