Russell Kerr is passionate about the Canadian Arctic. When he relocated from Florida Atlantic University to the University of Prince Edward Island, it was only natural his research would be associated with the warm waters of the Bahamas and the Florida Keys. But his appointment to UPEI’s prestigious Canada Research Chair in Marine Natural Products expanded his focus to Newfoundland; the Bay of Fundy; and Iqaluit, Nunavut. In the process, he launched Nautilus Biosciences Canada Inc. in Charlottetown to develop marine natural products for human and animal health and wellness.
