Wahweenga Study Tour

In the Fall term of 2022, students from the Master’s programs, Biomedical Engineering and Technical Medicine, at the University of Twente in the Netherlands, visited the University of Waterloo. The Centre for Bioengineering and Biotechnology (CBB) was honoured to host this amazing group of students who also visited leading universities in Canada and the U.S.A., on a study tour that they called ‘Wahweenga’. Wahweenga translates to ‘perfection' in the native Ojibwe language, an Algonk language spoken by indigenous people of Canada and the central north of the U.S.A. This tour was focused on answering one question: ‘How do the technical (bio)medical sectors of Canada and the U.S.A. strive towards perfection?

This fall, the University of Waterloo’s Health Initiatives team launched the Graham Seed Fund (GSF) and invited researchers to submit their proposals for innovative health-care solutions. The GSF strengthens the University’s health system partnerships by providing resources for collaborating directly with a full range of health providers and clinicians. Ten research proposals have been selected from the 34 that were received.

Stanford University recently published a comprehensive list identifying the top 2% of scientists worldwide. The list provides a ranking of 100,000 top scientists using citation metrics to determine the relevance and importance of a given research topic. Congratulations to the 36 CBB members who have been recognized as part of these top scientists:
