This release is available in French.

Montreal, October 12, 2011 Seven Concordia University professors have received new funding to advance research in fields ranging from linguistics to cancer. Following the recommendation of a peer committee, Canada Research Chairs were awarded to the following professors who are considered leaders in their field.

The announcement was made at Concordia in the presence of Senator Larry Smith and Chad Gaffield, president of the the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and head of the Canada Research Chairs Program Steering Committee:

  • Christopher L. Brett, a professor in the Concordia Department of Biology with expertise in neuroscience, biochemistry and genetics, was awarded the Canada Research Chair in Cellular Science and Human Health (Tier 2). He will study genetics and neural cell biology to better understand the cause of autism spectrum disorders.

  • Mia Consalvo, a professor in the Concordia Department of Communication Studies, obtained the Canada Research Chair in Games Studies and Design (Tier 1). She will advance the understanding of digital games by investigating player responses and will investigate ways to enhance their experience.

  • Ahmed Kishk, a professor in the Concordia Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, received a Canada Research Chair in Advanced Antenna Systems (Tier 1). His goal is to develop miniaturized antennas for smart phones that cover multiple frequency bands and can harvest solar energy to recharge batteries. He'll also investigate how to produce affordable, anti-collision radars for vehicles and microwave sensors for biomedical applications in cancer detection.

  • Kim McDonough, a professor in the Concordia Department of Education, obtained the Canada Research Chair in Applied Linguistics (Tier 2). She will exami
