Shane Journeay, a PhD student in toxicology at the WCVM, has been selected by the Canadian Foundation for International Space University to represent Canada at this year's International Space University's summer session through July and August in Strasbourg, France.  CFISU selects up to 10 Canadians involved in graduate studies or with graduate-level degress to participate, covering tuition, travel, room and board - a value of about $26,000 per student.

About 120 international graduate students will take part in lectures by renowned experts, hands-on-activities and projects, team work exercises and professional visits.  This year, one of the university's team project topics is nanotechnology - an ideal fit for Journeay.  For the past few years, Journeay has been investigating the biocompatibility and toxicity of nanoscale materials.
