About UVic knowlEDGE

UVic knowlEDGE is a series of half-page research features published monthly in the Victoria Times Colonist, except in July and August. It is produced by University Communications + Marketing with financial support from the Vice-President Research.

Through this series we help inform the local community about the impressive range and quality of research activity at the University of Victoria, and the societal relevance and impact of this research. The series also emphasizes the critical linkage between research and teaching.

Since the inception of the UVic knowlEDGE series in 1999, more than 160 features have appeared in the Times Colonist, which has provided the space as a service to education in our community. The university gratefully acknowledges their support.
