Une équipe de recherche en performance sportive repêche du talent international pour un lancement commercial

Un laboratoire de recherche à Edmonton tire parti du talent international afin d’aider à faire passer leurs solutions de haute technologie pour les sportifs du laboratoire au terrain de football. 

Sports performance research team drafts international talent for commercial kick-off

An Edmonton research lab is tapping into some international talent to help bring their high-tech solutions for athletes out of the lab and onto the football field. 

Shengjie Xiu, a 20-year-old undergraduate student from China, spent his summer working in professor Hossein Rouhani’s neuromuscular control and biomechanics laboratory at the University of Alberta. There, he’s been tasked with helping to develop a custom software application designed to pair to a set of augmented-reality (AR) goggles and biofeedback sensors that help athletes assess their performance.

Quantum start-up explodes traditional airport security

The innovation involves embedding silicon dots into paper. / with R&D internship funding by MitacsBut, until recently, Christina’s idea had been largely relegated to the pages of her PhD thesis and she’d since moved on to start teaching.

Natural beauty start-up goes more than skin deep

Research is essential in the natural products space, where consumers need evidence that products are effective and safe.

But for a small company, doing research isn’t simple. Projects and lab equipment are costly. It’s difficult to find and attract specialized talent. Making connections and fostering relationships between industry and academia is invaluable for a small company like Bend, which wants to maintain leading-edge work.

Mitacs postdoc boosts Bend’s capacity from within

Wearable tech takes the heat off wildfire-fighting pilots

Now, a team of Mitacs researchers is working to understand the risks involved with aerial firefighting and is developing customized wearable and in-flight technologies that could improve pilot safety during wildfire seasons. Their goal: develop a system to monitor a pilot’s physical and cognitive conditions using the latest in wearable technologies to empower the pilot and flight operations to only deploy when it’s safe to fly.

A meeting of the minds meets the challenges of deadly disease

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) — responsible for safeguarding the health of people, animals, and plants in our country — recognizes that scientists do a much better job of identifying and dealing with biological threats if they work together.

Kids with heart disease hit the court

That’s why Angelica jumped at the opportunity to research physical literacy programs for kids with CHD through a Mitacs internship.  She partnered with Sportball, a non-competitive sports education organization that offers methodology-based instruction for kids aged 16 months to 12 years old. Sportball programs across Canada work on developing children’s physical literacy while focusing on important sport, social, and motor skills.

Putting woodland conservation into the social media conversation

So she began a Master of Professional Communications at Royal Roads University. Now, thanks to a Mitacs internship, Alina is helping the Garry Oak Ecosystems Recovery Team (GOERT) enlist the public’s support to save endangered woodland areas.

UOttawa team sheds light on quantum physics

And for undergraduate Saudi Arabian student Abdulkarim Hariri, a Mitacs Globalink Research Internship this summer at the University of Ottawa meant the chance of a lifetime to contribute to an important part of quantum computing research.
