Imhotep's Legacy Academy (ILA) is a Dal-linked organization that aims to boost the number of children of African descent entering into STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields in Nova Scotia.
Two outstanding researchers from Dal have received national funding for their innovative work. Daniel Ruzzante (Biology) and Michelle Adams (Resource and Environmental Studies) were recipients of the NSERC Strategic Partnership Grants for Projects.
One of the pioneers of lithium-ion battery technology used around the world today, Jeff Dahn (NSERC/Tesla Canada Industrial Research Chair) is this year’s recipient of the Herzberg Gold Medal, Canada’s top award for scientific achievement. His win is Dalhousie’s third Herzberg medal in four years.
