University of Calgary

Our work is funded by start-up funds to Tutolo and numerous internal UCalgary funding opportunities (currently we are working with seed grant funding "Under the surface: A novel mineralogical hypothesis for life's origins in sub-seafloor fractures").  We also typically host 1-2 Program for Undergraduate Research Experience (PURE) students (entirely supported by University funds) and a host of senior undergraduate and course-based MSc thesis projects (GLGY 509, 510, 701 projects), which are partially supported by the Department of Geoscience.


Canada Foundation for Innovation

Much of the equipment in our Lab was purchased through a John Evans Leaders Fund grant, "Innovative characterization of water-rock interaction for a new generation of models of sustainable energy utilization"


Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council

Our work is funded in part by a Discovery Grant (RGPIN-2018-03800 A reactive transport approach for determining cause-and-effect redox relationships in elevated temperature Earth systems) and through a Collaborative Research and Development Grant Collaborative Research (532379-2018 Advancing scientific knowledge on fouling, erosion, and corrosion in Once Through Steam Generators) in collaboration with Canada’s Oil Sands Innovation Alliance,  We also typically host 1-2 NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Awards in our group.
