New research is underway to develop a coating that will kill the COVID-19 virus immediately upon contact with any surface. The antiviral coating could be applied to all personal protective equipment and high-touch surfaces, greatly reducing the risk of community transmission of the virus.
Last week, this year's Vanier Scholarship award winners were announced. Among the prestigious group were three Faculty of Science graduate students, including Christian Ieritano (Chemistry), Finnian Gray (Physics and Astronomy), and Spencer Weinstein (Biology).
An experiment that began by testing the properties of quantum entanglement has led to the discovery of a new diagnostic tool that could help optometrists detect macular degeneration much earlier than was previously possible.
Last week, the Faculty of Science celebrated its first virtual convocation. The Department of Chemistry welcomed 25 graduate students into their alumni family. including 14 PhD candidates and 11 MSc candidates.
Congratulations! We are so proud of these new scholars and all they have accomplished.
