SOTI SNAP Widget SDK Back-end Deployment

SOTI has developed a software product called SOTI SNAP that allows anyone to create an app with no programming or technical knowledge. SOTI SNAP allows users to create apps by dragging and dropping widgets onto a canvas and connecting them together to create an app. With SOTI SNAP apps can be created in minutes and the apps created can run on both Android and iOS devices.
SOTI is interested in created a widget SDK that will allow third parties to extend the capabilities of SNAP.

An integrated watershed-lake framework for water quality assessment in Toronto Harbour and Region Waterfront

This project aims to develop an integrated watershed-lake framework for Don River watershed draining into the Toronto Harbour to assess the best management practices towards improving the water quality in Toronto and Region Area of Concern (AOC). The framework will evaluate the impacts of suspended solids and bioavailable nutrients delivered by surface runoff and lake upwelling events on Toronto Harbour water quality, and their subsequent effects on eutrophication and growth of undesirable algae.

Understanding Disengagement from Early Psychosis Intervention Services - Year two

While the effectiveness of early psychosis interventions (EPI) for young people with first-episode psychosis has been well-established, research suggests that almost one-third of patients disengage from services. Although lack of family involvement and substance use have arisen as consistent factors associated with EPI disengagement, many other factors remain unexplored. Furthermore, few studies have explored patient and family member perspectives on engagement.

Smart Textiles for the delivery of neuromuscular electrical stimulation therapy (NMES)

Up to half of patients with COVID-19 requiring mechanical ventilation in an intensive care unit (ICU) will develop ICU-Acquired Weakness (ICUAW). Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) holds promise to both prevent and treat ICUAW. NMES applies electrical impulses to muscles through electrodes placed on the skin to induce muscle contractions, and is highly effective in maintaining muscle mass and strength following limb injury, when loading and exercise is limited.

Novel mechanisms and anti-platelet therapies of COVID-19-associated thrombosis

COVID-19 patients have a higher incidence of thrombotic events. Increased hypercoagulability was found in severe COVID-19 patients, but the mechanism of how SARS-CoV-2 virus affect our blood coagulation system is not fully understood. Platelet activation and blood coagulation are complementary, mutually dependent processes in haemostasis and thrombosis. Platelet contains large amount of integrin ?IIb?3 on the surface which is required for platelet aggregation/thrombus formation.

Macrophage modulation to reduce disease progression in hospitalized patients with COVID-19

N=209
Seriously ill patients with COVID-19 require ICU care, and have high rates of mortality, especially amongst patients with concurrent diseases such as high blood pressure. Recent clinical data demonstrate that disease progression is associated with an overwhelming, atypical cytokine response known as “Macrophage Activation Syndrome” (MAS). Macrophages are immune cells that can directly damage tissue or release cytokines that also damage distant organs leading to their failure.

Engineering Nanotechnology Formulations of Cannabinoids for Treatment of COVID-19-Induced Lung Inflammation

COVID-19 results in an increased expression of certain cytokines (i.e. chemicals produced by the body in response to an infection) that may result in inflammation, leading to organ and tissue damage. Cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabigerol (CBG) have been shown to have anti-inflammatory activity. For example, CBD has been shown to reduce the expression of cytokines in animal models of lung inflammation. We hypothesize that the anti-inflammatory effect of CBD and CBG may offer some therapeutic benefit to patients with COVID-19.

Quantum Key Infrastructure

The research described in this project proposes a very realistic and Quantum Computing resilient key distribution networking protocol to enable highly secure and efficient information flow. On one hand, the protocol provides unconditional one-time-pad based encryption; on the other hand, it is based on information-theoretic concepts that can be cost-effectively implemented today to establish Quantum Key Infrastructure (QKI) that somewhat resembles already existing Public Key Infrastructure (PKI). The PKI to a large extent could be used to enable QKI.

A new tool for managing introduced Phragmites australis in Ontario: assessing invasion impacts and implementing biological control

Introduced Phragmites australis (common reed) is one of the most invasive plants in North America. Existing management is costly, can negatively affect other species, and is often only effective for small infestations. Classical biological control (i.e., introducing herbivores from the weed’s native range) is a promising tool for P. australis management that can contribute to a broader program of integrated pest management (IPM). Our goal is to partner with Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) to implement biological control of introduced P. australis in southern Ontario.
