Entropy Labs's aerogel research has been awarded the Undergraduate Interdisciplinary Research Opportunity Grant through Ryerson University for the summer of 2017.

Co-founder Mark Zaidi will be holding the UIRO grant, working as a full-time Research Assistant under Dr. Bryan Koivisto of the Department of Chemistry and Biology, and Dr. Umberto Berardi of the Department of Building Science and Architecture. 

The UIRO Grant was awarded to research that promotes interdisciplinary work among the sciences.

The generous grant will help hasten Entropy Labs bring an affordable aerogel to market, and gain valuable experience in collaborating with other industries.
