Xiaonan Lu awarded NSERC Collaborative Research and Development Grant
Mar 4, 2016
Dr. Xiaonan Lu, Assistant Professor in Food Science, has been awarded an NSERC Collaborative Research and Development Grant (CRD) totaling $330,000 over 3 years (with generous contributions from his supporting organization). The main goal of his CRD research project is to develop paper-based microfluidic immunoassays to detect selective food chemical hazards, a technique which could be validated to be faster and less expensive than conventional methods. If successful, this technological advance will significantly improve food safety and greatly benefit the agricultural, food and biotechnology industries in Canada.
