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...
Comings and Goings in Spring 2020
While much has changed since the end of Winter 2020 term (university campus closing due to COVID-19 containment measures, research put to a halt, students and staff working from home and connecting by way of Zoom or MS Teams...), DIESEL still has plenty of news to share!
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.
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 have been busy these last few weeks with multiple papers accepted for publication. Check out our publication page to see what we've been up to!

DIESEL has recently had some great opportunities to meet local clinicians and health practitioners as well as out of province researchers in January and February!
Wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday with their family and friends. After a well deserved break, we are looking forward to returning to campus for the Winter semester to accomplish some more amazing shoulder research!
