As the new associate dean of research and graduate studies in SFU's faculty of applied science (FAS), Wade Parkhouse wants to recruit more quality graduate students into the faculty.

The kinesiology professor says it'll take more money for research and funding incentives to attract such students.

Parkhouse also wants to integrate and promote interdisciplinary research between FAS units, and between FAS and other B.C. universities.

In his own lab work, Parkhouse is exploring the role and mechanisms by which exercise maintains or enhances physical and cognitive function with aging. In January 2002, Parkhouse was unanimously appointed chair of the research advisory council to the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research (MSFHR).
