We're proud to announce the winners of the 2014-15 Faculty of Science Awards.
With one new fellow, one new college member, and two award recipients, UVic scientists will make out pretty well at the Royal Society of Canada’s annual general meeting (AGM) this November.
A team of UVic-based biochemists are set to revolutionize medical diagnostics with cheaper, less invasive methods.
A team of UVic researchers shared in one of the world’s most lucrative science awards this November.
The Faculty of Science is proud to release the 2014-15 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.
Recent PhD grad Michelle Parker has been awarded the 2015 Canada’s Distinguished Dissertation Award in the Engineering, Medical Science, and Natural Science category by the Canadian Association of Graduate Studies (CAGS).
New research led by UVic biologists, shows that marine fish species that are at risk of extinction are not being protected under either Canadaʼs Species at Risk Act (SARA) or its Fisheries Act, and that this is leading to further speciesʼ decline.
A new study published in the journal Science, co-authored by UVic biologist Tom Reimchen, reveals new insight behind widespread wildlife extinctions, shrinking fish sizes and disruptions to global food chains.
As Proteomics Centre director, Christoph Borchers heads research that can be applied to everything from developing more insect-resistant forests to identifying environmental problems, such as oil leaks, before they cause massive damage. Borchers' work was highlighted this month in UVic's KnowlEDGE feature in the Times Colonist.
The federal government recently approved Canada's $243M contribution to become a full partner in the international Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) project to built on Mauna Kea, Hawaii. UVic astronomers, and in particular several adjunct faculty based at NRC Herzberg in Saanich, are deeply involved in many technical aspects of this endeavour.
