July 3 Workshop: An Introduction to Bioinformatics (5:30 - 6:30 pm)
Go on a virtual scavenger hunt where you will have to find and identify the correct nucleotides to break the code. Find and uncover the ‘clues’ using databases like Gene Bank, and programming in Python to uncover the correct gene sequence and break the code.
July 10 Workshop: CAD and 3D Printing for Biomedical Design (4:30pm - 6:30 pm)
Use the SolidWorks Computer Aided Design Software to learn how to quickly and effectively design three-dimensional models. You will learn the main CAD techniques through a guided instructional session, followed by a chance to work with mentors on designing and 3D printing a biological model of your choice.
July 17 Workshop: Microbiology in Life (5:30pm to 7:30pm)
Lab skills are essential for any wet-lab research. In this workshop, you will learn about fundamental microbiological wet lab techniques as you are guided through various lab activities including Streak Plating and Microscopy. You will also hear from Dr. Trevor Charles, an expert in microbiology research, about his exciting work in the field.
July 24 Workshop: Applications of Biosensors and Biosignals (5:30pm - 8:30pm)
Get access to some of the latest biosensor and bio-signal hardware used in both, research and industry. Whether you are competing with a friend to control your brain waves through various brain-computer interfaces, trying on prosthetics developed by UW Students, or working through a phonomyographic circuit lab, we’ve got something for everyone
Civil Engineering to Cell Therapy: Applying Engineering Principles to Medical Product Development
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
