Julie Bilodeau is the 2017 winner of the Dr. Richard Playle Award for Outstanding MSc Thesis in Ecotoxicology

Posted on Monday, August 21, 2017

Julie Bilodeau, MSc student supervised by Jules Blais and Vance Trudeau, has received the honours for her work on “Toxicokinetics and bioaccumulation of polycyclic aromatic compounds in wood frog tadpoles (Lithobates sylvaticus) exposed to Athabasca oil sands sediment”.

The Dr. Richard Playle Awards were established by the Aquatic Toxicity Workshop (ATW), the precursor to CEW, in memory of Dr. Richard Colin Playle, a Professor of Biology at Wilfrid Laurier University from 1992 to 2005, who was an enthusiastic supporter of ATW and whose original insight spawned what was essentially a new area of research in aquatic toxicology: Biotic Ligand Modeling.
