    Partnering with York Region’s St. Robert’s School in Markham and Quanser, we are developing apps that will help in easy transition of high school students to university STEM program. Our goal is make sure every student is successful in Canadian post-secondary education system.

  3. Nov. 15, 2016DipTreat – innovative solution for water treatmentDipTreat in water with two microscopic images of E.coli and glucose.

    York researchers invent “sweet” solution to kill E. coli in drinking water. It is a novel paper-based water treatment technique, DipTreat, which uses glucose to fish E. coli from water, trap them within the porous paper matrix, and kill them using the antimicrobial properties of Moringa oleifera seed extract.
