Novel technique to diagnose autism in children

Young boy outside

Imagine if we had a technology that made the diagnostic process for autism less stressful for children. Imagine if we combined it with existing manual methods so that it could help doctors better avoid a false positive autism diagnosis.

Computer kidney could provide safer tests for new medications

A University of Waterloo researcher has spearheaded the development of the first computational model of the human kidney.

The new model will allow scientists to gain better insights into how new drugs that target the kidney, such as diabetes medication, may work. It will also enable researchers to better learn about the functions of the kidney, including the how the organ regulates the body's salt, potassium, acid content without having to employ invasive procedure on a patient.

Applied Math Professor Appointed Visiting Scholar at University of Bordeaux

Applied Math Professor Kirsten Morris has been appointed a Visiting Scholar at the University of Bordeaux. During her eight-month appointment, Prof. Morris will research control and estimation of systems modeled by partial differential equations. A particular focus is the location of control actuators and sensors as part of controller and estimator synthesis. Prof. Morris and her colleagues at the University of Bordeaux hope to make advances in theory and numerics related to energy efficient buildings.
