Elizabeth Edwards wins a 2017 Faculty Award for outstanding teaching and research

It’s the magic of chemistry — combine two substances and they transform into a third that’s completely different. Professor Elizabeth Edwards (ChemE), a pioneering researcher in the field of environmental engineering, makes this magic with microbes and contaminated water, cleaning hard-to-access underground reservoirs of pollutants naturally and safely.

For this pioneering work, which also demonstrates the best in cross-disciplinary collaboration, and for her outstanding teaching, Edwards, who is the Canada Research Chair in Anaerobic Biotechnology and director of BioZone, is being honoured with a 2017 Faculty Award. The annual prize recognizes U of T teaching staff who consistently demonstrate all-around excellence in both their scholarly work and in the classroom.
