A Pandemic Year in Review

Fifteen months off campus and DIESEL has managed to keep busy! As we head into Spring 2021, we have news (hope!) of a slow return to campus in Fall 2021 to boost our spirits. While we all look ahead to getting back in the lab, here's a look back at our pandemic year...

Farewell, Alison!

One of our post-doctoral students, Alison McDonald has accepted a new position as a Research Scientist for a London, Ontario company. This industry role will be a big change for Alison, having been in the academic system since her undergraduate days at University of Waterloo, and we are excited for her and supportive of this new challenge she is undertaking! Her last day will be Friday.

Looking ahead at Summer 2019

DIESEL Summer Research Collections

Things are busy in the lab this summer! DIESEL trainee research collections are in full swing, and we are looking for participants! Dan Fournier is studying smart watch use while performing typical rotator cuff rehabilitation exercises, while Bhillie Luciani is hoping to finish up her MSc thesis collection focusing on pectoralis muscle fatigue in university-aged males.

DIESEL trainees are currently recruiting participants for a research study! 

We are actively looking for individuals with overweight or obese body types (as determined by the Body Mass Index (BMI) measurement) for an ergonomics research study taking place on campus in our lab. The aim of this study is to assess differences in physical exposures between varying body composition groups while performing manual material handling tasks. 

DIESEL trainees are currently recruiting participants for an upcoming research study!

We are looking for male and female volunteers to help us investigate muscle activity in individuals with different breast tissue thickness.
