Researcher Ian Manners at UVic
Specializing in synthetic self-assembled materials, Canada 150 Research Chair Ian Manners joins a team of UVic scientists leading the way in nanotechnology, advanced imaging technologies, biomedical devices, and materials for energy applications.

Thinking big—and small

Some of the most profound questions in science are about the nature of matter. What is it made of? What holds it together? Can we alter it to create new types of matter and materials?

The answers lie in the depths of inner and outer space. Whether they’re probing the behaviour of subatomic particles, scanning the universe for distant stars and galaxies, using mathematics to explain our complex world, or creating new molecules and materials, UVic scientists and engineers are world leaders in the quest for answers.

Nanotechnology, spintronics, photonics, supramolecular design, advanced crystal growth, and advanced microscopy—these are among the technologies used by our researchers to develop new materials for applications as diverse as health care, electronics, manufacturing, and environmental monitoring and remediation.
