Areas of strength

As one of Canada’s top research universities, UVic is home to expertise that spans a broad range of disciplines. We're at the forefront of discovery on everything from aging to music to zoology.

Our researchers are international leaders in the following areas:

Mobilizing knowledge

UVic researchers are creating new knowledge to improve the social, cultural and economic well-being of people in Canada and around the world.

We're working with community, government and industry partners to turn that new knowledge into action.

UVic is home to 20 research centres and affiliated organizations that promote partnerships and knowledge exchange across disciplines.
Dr. Peter Constabel is the Director of the Centre for Forest Biology. In this video, Peter talks about the Centre's research collaborations on forest biology and also how it relates to climate change.

Who are our researchers? What do they study? And how is their work relevant to our lives?

Meet our researchers in the ongoing Faces of UVic Research video series. Our researchers give short and succinct descriptions of their work—in everyday language—that gets to the heart of what they do and why it matters.

UVic KnowlEDGE is a continuing series of feature stories published 10 times a year in partnership with the Victoria Times Colonist. Each story profiles a researcher’s work with a focus on how he or she is making a difference to our lives and the world around us.
