McGill University recently celebrated two major infrastructure announcements: a significant gift that will be used to construct a new sports science institute, as well as the opening of a research facility focused on extreme weather. McGill will create the Sylvan Adams Sports Science Institute (SASSI) through a $29M gift from entrepreneur Sylvan Adams. SASSI will include testing labs, training suites, and more, and will focus on the study of elite athletes. Meanwhile, the university has also opened the Adaptable Earth Observation System (AEOS) research facility. Researchers will use AEOS to conduct research on extreme weather conditions and to perform advanced ecological research.
