Mitacs Elevate Fellowship
PPC researcher Wisarn Yenjaichon, postdoctoral fellow at Chemical and Biological Engineering, received a two-year Mitacs Elevate Postdoctoral Fellowship of $57,500 per year. He will work on a project that focuses on “Refining of Kisolite Clay for Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic Applications” with industry partner Kisameet Glacial Clay Inc., and under supervision of John Grace, Professor at Chemical and Biological Engineering and Loretta Li, Professor at Civil Engineering. The project focuses on particle separation to provide better understanding of antimicrobial activity in relationship to particle size and mineralogical properties of the Kisolite clay. This will allow an assessment of the clay for various potential applications, as well as optimization of refining processes for applications.
