Mireya developed a clever way to attach fibres to a film made from a very large molecule found in many tissues. This allows for better control of the shape of the biomaterial and therefore the growth of cells.
Ouarda, a senior undergraduate student studying data science at Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris, France, is working with Dr. Forgeot d’Arc this summer to understand the autistic person’s perspective and provide a numerical assessment of the severity of their condition.
For Professor Martin Ordonez’s team at the UBC Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering who work in power electronics and conversion, one of the ways of being ahead is developing clean energy through research in renewable electric vehicles (EV) and power storage.
Institutions, not-for-profit organizations, and businesses across Ontario are frequently caught off-guard and are at risk of non-compliance with the recent Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA); the Act requires improved accessibility in buildings. Without a clear inventory of problem areas, organizations are often unknowingly at risk for penalties.
The world’s honeybee populations are declining: ravaged by a phenomenon known as colony collapse disorder that kills entire hives with no warning. Up to 30 percent of the world’s food supply relies on honeybee pollination, yet scientists don’t yet know what causes the problem.
