The purchase of two machines will mean state-of-the-art cancer research at the Univerisity of Saskatchewan. One will break down single cells to determine levels of malignancy and see how they respond to different drugs. The other looks at how the disease disrupts the body clock and the resulting aggressiveness of tumours. The university is getting 300-thousand dollars toward the purchase of those devices. Another 200-thousand dollars has been awarded for a drone allowing researchers to predict potential floods, fires, droughts and pollution. It’s able to cover hundreds of square kilometres over a duration of more than eight hours.
