    Poitras, Trevor

    The peripheral nervous system is capable of regeneration, however often times, the regeneration is limited and incomplete. Injury sustained to the peripheral nervous system is acquired through physical insult to the nerves, or through pathophysiological manifestations called neuropathies. My work...

    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...

    Brenneis, Dylan

    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...

    Through the sundial, the images tell the story of my notions of knowledge and knowing as an interpolation of the third space, shared through a Dene and Cree lens. Like the blind spot that exists within the means of the eye, the ethos of my understanding of curriculum aspects are shared through...

    Law, Lauren

    Glass sponge reefs in Hecate Strait, British Columbia are threatened by trawling and oil/gas exploration. The reefs are ancient, dated at 9,000 years old, and represent modern analogues of extinct reefs that once existed during the Jurassic period. Given their rarity and vulnerability to damage,...

    Sims, Ashley

    Historians rely overwhelmingly on written sources as their principal evidence. They then take that evidence and add more text, using layers of interpretation, analysis, and argument in order to examine and explain past events. My doctoral dissertation explores consumer behaviour in 17th-century...

    McFarlane, Vincent

    Frazil ice particles form in the turbulent supercooled waters of northern rivers prior to freeze-up. The individual particles suspended in the flow are primarily disc-shaped, very small (maximum of ~4 mm in diameter), and upon contact with each other will freeze together into complex formations...

    This image is of a Western Meadowlark nest, a grassland-specific songbird that can be found across the prairies in the summer. Only 25-30% of Canadian grasslands remain, an area that is currently declining due to conversion into agricultural fields and fragmentation due to the construction of...

    Vokey, M

    Man’s best friend has been known for centuries as the loving, furry dog. Humans have created a strong, unique bond exclusive to canines. The characteristic of caring makes this partnership desirable. A person yearns for the free-zone a dog provides, free from judgement, criticism, rejection,...
