The Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) in collaboration with Bruce Power has opened the Bruce Power Centre for Health, Environment and Radiation (BP-CHER). BP-CHER conducts research that includes: Low Dose Adaptive Responses, Health and Environment, Environmental Monitoring, Effects of Ultra-Low Doses, Detection of Radioisotopes, Cancer Risk, Non-Cancer Risk, and Fetal Programming (see Figure 1). Together in partnership with the Turtle Island Center, research activities at NOSM through BP-CHER can attract additional leverage funding partners including: NOHFC, FedNor, NSERC, and MITACS.
NOSM is unique in Canada and links together existing NOSM researchers with faculty at several other Canadian universities. NOSM and TIC will have a strong focus on research translation: workshops and guidance publications will provide leadership in the environmental and health for First Nations communities across the north, national and international government regulators, and various industries.
