Uniquely awarded

Chris Le, Xingfang Li and Jonathan Martin of the Division of Analytical and Environmental Toxicology at the University of Alberta, Canada, have all been recognized by the Canadian Society of Chemistry for their unique blend of research. The division is the only one in Canada to apply the basic science of chemistry and toxicology to study human health and environmental factors that affect human health, the University says. Le, the Division's director said: "This is particularly gratifying considering that our department is not a traditional chemistry department. People are recognizing this unique interdisciplinary program we have built here." Le's work focuses on arsenic contamination of rural water supplies.
