Biomolecular Structure Analysis to Accelerate Development of New Vaccines and Monoclonal Antibodies

Manufacturing of consistently high quality products is the commitment of pharmaceutical industry. To achieve this, new products must be thoroughly tested and the results meet government-approved product specifications. Improving existing and adopting improved analytical technologies for product testing ensure the production of safe and effective products. This is particularly critical for the manufacturing of biologic products which, relative to small molecular drugs, have a larger size, are more complex in structure and are thus more difficult to characterize.

Renewable Energy Mobility (REM)

The proposed REM project aims at developing and installing a highly iconographic solar charging station that will help inspire and foster the expansion of local infrastructure for electric vehicles at York University. This effort is part of a plan to use this innovative solar charging station to offset the electrical needs of EVs and most importantly to attract autosharing companies to the campus so EVs can become highly accessible to everyone at the university.

Economic Capital Modeling by Using Copulas

Sun Life Financial is carrying out its ERM and ORSA analysis. The company seeks to develop sophisticated and mathematically sound internal models that would serve as company's own risk measurement tools for EC evaluations, provide continuing insights into the appropriate risk management routes, as well as be a benchmark against the RC required by the OSFI.

Capturing Learning in the Classroom (CLIC)

CLIC (Capturing Learning in the Classroom) is a Canadian-developed web-application designed to allow teachers to document observations of children’s learning experiences in the classroom. It streamlines the documentation process and automatically generates summaries for planning and communication of learning. CLIC enables teachers to link their observations to the expectations set out in the standardized curriculum document.

Impact of early vaccination during influenza outbreaks

Vaccination is an important preventive measure against influenza infection during both seasonal epidemics and pandemic outbreaks. This research aims to understand the effect of early vaccination during influenza outbreaks. The objectives are to measure the effectiveness of early vaccination in terms of reducing disease burden (e.g., infection, hospitalization). We apply an important methodology, namely mathematical and computational techniques, to achieve our objectives.

Design and Analysis of a Platform to Connect Patients, Providers, and their Social Networks

The healthcare system in Canada and world-wide is suffering increased pressure due to an aging population and increased rates of chronic disease. Research shows that self-management and social networks are key indicators for reducing utilization and cost and improving outcomes of healthcare systems. Lifeguard Health Solutions Inc. has developed a mobile health application that uses technology to connect patients with their providers, their trusted support network, and their peers to improve self-management and social network strength.

Evolution of digital access modes in Employee and Family Assistance Programs

Shepell·fgi is a leading provider of Employee and Family Assistance Programs (EFAPs) for domestic and global clients. As digital technology and online social networks became increasingly important, Shepell·fgi added new digital services (First Chat, Video Counselling, Online Access, and other online programs) other than the traditional delivery channels (telephone and in-person appointments). Many recent studies focus on analyzing the clinical and monetary effectiveness of these online programs, however, rarely do they focus on user demographics.

Human well-being, ecosystem services and watershed management in the Credit River Valley: Web-distributed mechanisms and indicators for communication and awareness

The importance of ecosystem services to human well-being, and of management of water and other watershed resources in maintaining such services, is not commonly understood by the general public, and not well-enough articulated by environmental management and governance organizations. Beneficiaries of such services are often unaware of the nature of their dependence upon supporting ecosystems. This is particularly true in urbanized watersheds, to the point where researchers discuss “nature deficit disorder” as an aspect of this disconnection.

Adding Extra Constraints to an Open Platform for Industrial

Acculogic develops state-of-the-art testers for short-batch electronic circuit boards (ECBs). The order in which the required tests are performed affects the amount of shuttle and probe movements required between the tests, and this affects the overall efficiency of the test procedure. Unique characteristics of the problem (e.g. the ability to move one set of probes to the next test location while another set of probes is performing a test) make the problem too large and too complex to be solved with most traditional combinatorial optimization and heuristic search techniques (e.g.

Gaining career insight one step at a time

In total, Junjie has taken nine Step workshops. Initially, it was the “the professional coaches and energetic peers” that persuaded him to sign up for more. However, he soon realized the workshops provided him with a broader perspective on his future career path, along with training to develop his soft skills.
