Ferring will finance McGill University's Professor Bruno Tremblay

MONTREAL, April 4 /CNW Telbec/ - Underlining its commitment to the global environment as well as challenges presented by climate change, Ferring Pharmaceuticals, the international biopharmaceutical company, is happy to announce a donation of $125,000 to finance research on the condition of ice in the Arctic, under the leadership of Dr. Bruno Tremblay, a Professor in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at McGill University.

Dr. Tremblay launches his mission today in Resolute Bay in the Arctic, where he will install research buoys that track both ice thickness and temperature, with the objective to better understand ice compression, ice movement and future evolution.

We invite you to follow his mission through his blog: http://brunotremblay.tumblr.com/. Share his experience in the Great North from the comfort of your home or office.

"We have always believed in the importance of investing in scientific education and research, and the partnership we have developed with McGill will make a telling contribution across a wide range of different areas," said Michel Pettigrew (BCom '76), Ferring's President and Chief Operating Officer.

With Ferring's engagement and financial support, Dr. Tremblay's research models will be able to predict future ice melting in the Arctic Region. Dr. Tremblay is internationally renowned for his expertise and has received several Canadian and international awards and honours.
