School of KIN research team wins grant to help hard-to-reach populations

Drs. Guy Faulkner, Mark Beauchamp, Eli Puterman

KIN professors, Drs. Guy Faulkner, Mark Beauchamp and Eli Puterman have received the John R. Evans Leaders Fund grant from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation, with a complementary match by the BC Knowledge Development Fund.

The $1.53 million award will fund the development of the RESPECT Collaboratory, a facility that is designed for building, assessing, and evaluating physical activity initiatives developed for hard-to-reach populations.

The RESPECT Collaboratory will position UBC and the School of Kinesiology as world leaders in physical activity research that focuses on hard-to-reach populations.

Congratulations to Dr. Faulkner and his team on this outstanding achievement!
