John McPhee and researchers develop 3D-printed device for wheelchair curlers for better shot control

John McPhee thought it would be easy to design a device to give Canada’s competitive wheelchair curlers better control of their shots.

Eighteen months and seven prototypes later, he doesn’t mind admitting it hasn’t been easy at all.

The surprisingly complex problem has so far required hundreds of hours of work by McPhee, a systems design engineering professor at the University of Waterloo, and four of his students.

Emmanual Ho and researchers find new treatment for Chlamydia

Researchers at the University of Waterloo have developed a new way to prevent and treat Chlamydia, the most common sexually transmitted bacterial infection in the world. 

The new treatment differs from the traditional anti-biotic treatment as it is a type of gene therapy that is delivered via nanotechnology and is showing a 65 per cent success rate in preventing chlamydia infection on a single dose.
