Anodyne Advances Its Alliance with SFU Through Mitacs Fellowship Award

Vancouver, British Columbia, June 10th, 2022 — Mitacs Innovations has granted Anodyne Chemestries Inc. (“Anodyne”) and The Simon Fraser University (“SFU”) a grant award of $20,000.00 funding by the Mitacs Accelerate Fellowship to support the Engineered enzyme architectures for renewable hydrogen generation.

Mitacs Accelerate Fellowships aim to provide long-term funding and internship options for master’s and Ph.D. students; recipients can also access professional development training that helps them ensure project success and gain in-demand career skills. Mitacs empowers Canadian Innovation through effective partnerships that deliver solutions to our most pressing problems.

“At Anodyne, we are seeking firsthand the urgent need to assist manufacturing companies in producing low-carbon products for a positive climate future,” said Anodyne’s CEO, Iain Evans. “We believe this grant’s support will significantly impact the chemical industry, responsible for roughly 10% of global energy consumption.”

About Anodyne Chemistries

Anodyne is a biochemistry company developing a platform to harness naturally occurring enzymes to create high-value fuels and chemicals.

Catalytic enzymes have been the subject of significant scientific interest over the last decade, but their reactions are slow and low yielding. Anodyne has discovered a scalable method of immobilizing enzymes to turn low-yield reactions into controlled high-yield performance. This is a globally significant development that has the potential to create carbon-negative alternatives to a variety of industrial processes. Learn more at
