Dr. Jane Hill has been appointed as new Canada Research Chair in Breath Science and Technology (Tier 1). Dr. Hill’s lab aims to “push the technological boundaries of what can be achieved diagnostically using human breath” and other biological samples.

The Government of Canada’s Canada Research Chair program aims to support some of the country’s most outstanding researchers in the fields of engineering and the natural sciences, health sciences, humanities and social sciences. Chairholders are some of the world’s brightest scholars and scientists who contribute to new discoveries and help us make sense of the world we live in.

Additionally, Dr. Hill’s research in Developing Breath as a Diagnostic Paradigm for Human Health has received $240,000 through the Canadian Foundation for Innovation’s (CFI) John R. Evans Leaders Fund.
