Marcel Babin, Canada Excellence Research Chair in Remote Sensing of Canada's New Arctic Frontier at Université Laval, has been invited to speak at the 178th meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Babin will take part in the Canada Press Breakfast on February 17, where he will talk about his research in Canada’s North, and its implications for the future.
Moderated by Kate Moran, director of NEPTUNE Canada and former assistant director in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, the panel will also feature David VanderZwaag, Canada Research Chair in Ocean Law and Governance at Dalhousie University; Maria Maldonado, Canada Research Chair in Phytoplankton Trace Metal Physiology at The University of British Columbia; and Sherilee Harper, a Vanier Canada Graduate Scholar at the University of Guelph’s Department of Population Medicine.
Focusing on the theme “Oceans and the Arctic,” the press breakfast aims to put the spotlight on Canadian researchers and promote Canada as the place to undertake cutting-edge research. The AAAS annual meeting is one of the most widely recognized pan-science events in the world, and is being held outside the United States for the first time in 30 years. Some 10,000 delegates are expected to attend.
