$10 million to U. Alberta to launch “School of Building Science & Engineering”; hoping some focus on microbes

Good to see builders putting money into the academic side of building science: Home builder donates $10 million to U of A to make construction greener. Not sure if this builder has a good or a bad or a middle of the road track record in any way but 10 million dollars to help start the “Nasseri School of Building Science and Engineering” seems like a good thing.  Here’s hoping that there will be some discussion of microbes as part of the new school’s activities.  The dean says “the new school will develop a holistic approach to improving safety, quality and sustainability in home construction” and to me that should include some work on microbes too.
