Dr Cullen has received the Craigdarroch Award for Excellence in Knowledge Mobilization from the University of Victoria.

The campus newspaper reports:

“In the years following the 2011 Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear disaster in Japan, chemical oceanographer Dr. Jay Cullen saw an emerging public demand for open-access information on radiation risks to the environment and human health on the BC coast. In 2014, he launched the InFORM Network, which engages scientists in Canada, the US, health experts, NGOs and citizen scientists to monitor and report on detectable radioactivity in seawater and seafood along the coast. He has adeptly and tirelessly used print media, social media, public engagements, and TV and radio appearances to demystify the science on radiation risk and on other issues related to anthropogenic contaminants, geoengineering and climate change.”

Dr. Cullen, and the other recipients of the 2016 Craigdarroch Research Awards,  will be honored with a celebration of their accomplishments on May 5th.
