The BC Knowledge Development Fund has announced $8.7 million in funding for ARIEL, a UVic-led accelerator facility at Vancouver-based TRIUMF, Canada's national laboratory for particle and nuclear physics.
Wednesday September 14, 2016, was a very sad day for the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and the Faculty of Science. That morning, the news came that Professor Martial Agueh has passed away after a short illness.
Randall Sobie, an adjunct physics professor at UVic and a research scientist with the Institute of Particle Physics, is leading a project to build a distributed data and cloud computing system for the ATLAS experiment at the CERN Laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland. The new system will significantly advance global investigations into the fundamental structure of the universe.
UVic microbiologist Caroline Cameron and University of Washington’s Sheila Lukehart received a $2.3 million grant (USD) from the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The grant will allow them to continue to make headway on vaccine development against syphilis.
UVic biochemist Martin Boulanger is recieiving a five-year $825,000 project grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) to continue research into how Apicomplexa—the group of single-celled parasites that cause toxoplasmosis and severe malaria—invade host cells.
The Faculty of Science is proud to release the 2015-16 Dean's List. The list recognizes the top 10% of current undergraduate students by year based on sessional GPA and of graduating students based on their graduating GPA.
Two University of Victoria biochemists are entering into a collaboration that could take immunotherapy—the latest and most promising form of cancer treatment—to the next level.
Grand Challenges Canada has awarded a total of $50,000 to UVic chemist Alexandre Brolo for his research on two applications that could alleviate this emerging public health crisis.
Paul Junhyuck Kim, a University of Victoria biochemistry student known for his passion for philanthropy and science, has won one of Canada's most prestigious awards for outstanding leadership.
Congratulations to all the winners of the 2016 President's Distinguished Service Awards.
In an article published in Nature, an international team of scientists co-led by UVic biologist Ben Koop describes how the Atlantic salmon genome has made a full backup copy of itself.
Three members of the University of Victoria’s Faculty of Science have been awarded Craigdorroch Research Awards. These awards recognize outstanding research and creative achievement at the University of Victoria.
