Effectuer de la recherche sur une technologie canadienne d’avant-garde pour la maison

Travaillant sous la supervision de Janet Light et d’Ali Reza Manashty, qui poursuit ses études de doctorat à l’Université du Nouveau-Brunswick à St. John’s, Umang apporte son aide afin de mettre au point un système de surveillance des soins de la santé complet pour la maison à l’intention des aînés et des personnes ayant une déficience physique.

Optimization of a Dermoskeleton for Human Performance in Clinical and Occupational Applications

Physical disability in Canadian adults is largely due to painful mobility impairments, with the most common cause being diseases of, and injuries to, the musculoskeletal system and connective tissues (MSK disorders). MSK disorders are generally associated with natural aging, but are also caused by occupational injuries as well as brain or spinal cord injury or disease. The cost of these conditions to the Canadian Health Care system is in the tens of billions per year.

Shear-stress measurements on an impulsively started cylinder

Envenio is a Canadian company that specializes in advanced analysis of fluid dynamics and fluid structure interaction in the technological and environment settings. Envenio is also a software development company that owns an advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics solver, EXN/Aero, that uses many core technology in the parallel computation of unsteady and fully turbulent flows. Envenio seeks experimental data to validate their unsteady separation codes. To this end, an intern in Dr.

Improved Tactile Sensors for Biomedical Applications

The Institute of Biomedical Engineering at UNB is at the frontier of myoelectric signal acquisition and interpretation in patients with prosthetic devices. A particular challenge is understanding the effect of surface contact pressure on voltage measurements at the skin-electrode interface. Smart Skin Technologies (SST) is a New Brunswick company developing multi-touch pressure sensors aimed at several markets including smart-phones, sports training and industrial quality assurance.

Peptide Antagonists of Transient Receptor Potential Vanilloid Type Calcium Channel (TRPV6) as a Potential Therapeutic Agent for Multiple Myeloma

Overexpression of the calcium channel – Transient receptor potential vanilloid type (TRPV6) occurs in many epithelial type cancers [4] and hematological malignancy such as leukemia [7]. However, no correlation of TRPV6 to the deadly bone marrow cancer, multiple myeloma, has been made so far. Recently, we have detected the strong expression of TRPV6 protein in the bone marrow of MM patients, and this interesting finding has led us to investigate the potential of TRPV6 as a therapeutic target for multiple myeloma in collaboration with Soricimed Biopharma Inc.

Improvement of process control in a PHK based dissolving pulp production process

AVN uses a sophisticated Distributed Control System (DCS) to monitor and control the process. The mill is equipped with a data historian system which captures continuous and discrete process data from the DCS and manual tests. The effectiveness of process monitoring and control has evolved over the years. But at many stages of the process, operators’ and engineers’ interventions are still required to control the process. Now AVN is looking at the next level of process monitoring tools to take quicker corrective actions for both short term and long term process drifts.

Intelligent control strategies for the Industrial Internet – Phase 1

The overall research aims at conducting studies that use high volume data and analytics in order to provide realtime process optimization and optimal control to processes that are to be controlled in preparation for the industrial environment. These investigations is the first stage or Phase 1 associated with creating the mechanism to have machines learn, learn form each other and make intelligent decisions, using a framework of sensor(s) connectivity and cloud-based computing as part of the industrial internet.

Un étudiant Mitacs Globalink contribue à la recherche sur la cyber sécurité au Canada

Étudiant originaire de la Universidade Federal Da Paraíba à Rio Tinto, au Brésil, Kelson a décidé de venir au Canada pour faire un stage de recherche parce que ce serait « une occasion idéale de découvrir au beau pays » tout en approfondissant ses connaissances sur la sécurité des réseaux. Ses collègues du programme Globalink et lui ont certainement profité de cette occasion en visitant les parcs nationaux, en explorant la ville de Fredericton et même en prenant part à quelques ateliers Mitacs Étapes portant sur la communication efficace et le travail d’équipe.

Ad hoc self-service querying with Semantic Web services: core technologies and biomedical use cases

Many users need to draw information from hundreds of completely autonomous resources, such as online biomedical databases, clinical databases and specialized analytical Web services. IPSNP Computing Inc. is developing a technology based on Semantic Web services that facilitates ad hoc self-service querying of such distributed resources by non-technical users, such as biologists or clinical researchers. Products include a query engine HYDRA and a query composition GUI, intended initially for biomedical applications, such as drug discovery and Clinical Intelligence.

Visualizing the Performance of Scientific Applications Executing with Space-Time Domain Decomposition

Today’s high performance computers offer the possibility of computing complex large scale computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations in a reasonable time. In practice, exploting the thousands of computing cores to achieve the desired solution time is very challenging. These challenges include finding enough work to keep all these cores busy, and assigning work to different parts of the computing platform that can include different types of multicore processors and manycore graphics processors.
