News: Ryerson Research Chair

Bin Wu has been selected as the first Ryerson Research Chair (RRC). The RRC program provides outstanding researchers at Ryerson, both the recognition of their present accomplishments and the opportunity to significantly extend their future research activities and accomplishments. Individuals selected as a RRC will be provided with support over a period of up to two years that will enable them to focus their energies, during the award period, primarily on their research activities.
