November 17, 2017 FedNor today announced a $563,424 investment from the Government of Canada, Province of Ontario and Greater Sudbury Development Corporation in support of ICES North, an ICES satellite site currently in development in Sudbury at Health Sciences North Research Institute in partnership with Laurentian University and the Northern Ontario School of Medicine. This investment will benefit researchers and health care professionals in Northern Ontario, and help to advance health research and innovation in the region. “Connecting Health Sciences North to ICES’ network will help increase scientific collaboration and assist in developing tools for better patient outcomes. I look forward to the positive results today’s announcement will deliver for patients, families and health care professionals living and working in the region,” says Marc Serré, Member of Parliament for Nickel Belt. ICES satellite sites expand our capacity to generate high-quality research that contributes to the improvement of health care and health services in Ontario. ICES adjunct scientist Mike Conlon was appointed ICES North site director earlier this year. The site is planned to be operational in 2018.
