Recipients of the 2017 Queen’s Research Opportunities Fund announced

Queen’s University Professor Robert Ross (Kinesiology and Health Studies) will receive funding from Queen’s Research Opportunities Fund (QROF) for Exercise and Metabolomics—a novel approach to understanding the mechanisms by which exercise improves cardiometabolic health.

Queen’s University will be funding the research of 20 faculty members following their successful applications to the Queen’s Research Opportunities Fund (QROF). Launched in 2015, the QROF represent a strategic internal investment in areas of institutional research strength that provides researchers and scholars with the opportunity to accelerate their programs and research goals.

“Research is a core component of the mission of Queen’s University, and a key driver of our Strategic Framework,” says Dr. John Fisher, Interim Vice-Principal (Research). “Through the QROF program, we are making important internal investments that present new opportunities to build on research excellence and to enhance success of our faculty with external agencies and non-governmental organizations. I look forward to seeing the project outcomes for this year’s recipients.”
