Official announcement of funding through the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s John R. Evans Leaders Fund (JELF). The Hon. Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science and Sport, made the announcement today while visiting SFU’s Burnaby Campus. Dr. Ralph Pantophlet is one of three SFU lead researchers to receive JELF funding. The Pantophlet lab will acquire a new-generation flow cytometry system, enabling high-resolution analyses of immune responses and precise recovery of immune cells, thus stimulating new vaccine and cure strategies.
