    Anoveros, Ana

    During cancer, patients lose a significant amount of muscle mass. This is associated with poor outcomes and increased mortality rates. Muscle is composed of different types of muscle fibers (also called muscle cells): slow muscle fibers are meant for endurance activities and fast muscle fibers...

    Thera, Becky

    The intent of my research is to engage in a conversation about the complexities of sexual violence, related trauma and patriarchal systems. My research is conducted through artistic creation, as it has the capacity to address this complicated social issue with humanity and emotion. This image is...

    This micrograph (magnified √ó 500), taken by an optical microscope, shows multi-scaled crystalline grains at the interface between a martensitic weld metal (upper left) and a Grade 91 steel (bottom right). Weld metal solidified from the molten steel liquid and grew into coarse columnar crystals...

    Pohlod , Meghan

    I am a visual artist working in print media and installation practices examining the body as interior and exterior space in order to question what happens with traumatic memory when triggered by image, place and time. I am concerned with the trauma of abandonment and desire to understand my own...

    Human mutations in the gene unc119 result in retinal degeneration that can eventually lead to colour and night vision loss and in extreme cases, blindness. Yet, it isn't known how unc119 functions in the retina and why mutations cause retinal disease. The goal of my project is to use the...

    Kerr, Shaun

    When an ultra-intense laser hits a solid target, jets of particles stream off in all directions. Hydrogen, as the lightest element, gets preferentially accelerated, resulting in proton beams. These beams have many potential applications, from medical radiotherapy to fusion energy. The study of...

    Maruyama, Michiko

    Drawing on my unique combination of industrial design, graphic art, and medical training, I aim to create educational resources that facilitate knowledge transfer and communication between physician and child. Since children learn through play, I was inspired to dedicate my Master of Industrial...

    Each summer as air temperatures rise amongst the midnight sun, permafrost begins to thaw top down. This thawing is short lived though as fall’s cool breath begins to show itself in late August and these soils refreeze as the long winter sets in. Understanding what controls the depth of this top...

    The image depicts a robotic hand expressing its identity through self-portraiture, challenging the viewer to reconsider the role of a prosthetic hand as simply a crude replacement. While this level of dexterity and intelligence is still beyond the capabilities of prosthetic limbs, it is entirely...

    My current PhD research focuses on environmental biosafety of transgenic pea (Pisum sativum L.). We are testing the efficacy of transgenic disease pea against fungal pathogens in comparison to the non-transgenic pea in confined field trials. When we have to compare transgenic lines, we not only...
