Professor Kim Nasmyth: How are chromosomes held together?
Intended audience: Faculty, staff, grad students, and third- or fourth-year undergraduate students.
Professor Kim Nasmyth: My scientific journey; a lecture for young scientists.
NOTE: This event is now at capacity. Please consider attending the Gairdner research lecture in the afternoon. To register your interest in having your high school class participate in the lecture and activities next year, please contact Diana Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org
Join us for an evening with Dr. Karl Gebhardt, a Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Texas, Austin. He studies various ‘dark’ aspects of galaxies, and has measured more black hole masses than anyone in the world.
"We are living in a unique time for Astronomy as its focus shifts from exploring the light side to mounting a full scale attack on the dark side: black holes, dark matter and dark energy. I will overview current and future battle plans that promise to bring about a fundamental transformation of our understanding of the Universe."
Join us at the University of Waterloo at the Ontario Universities' Fair in downtown Toronto.
Speak to staff, students, and professors from the Faculty of Science and find out everything you need to know about our programs.
Look for the Science representatives in blue T-shirts at the University of Waterloo booth.
Professor Loeb serves as Chair of the Harvard Astronomy department and Director of the Institute for Theory and Computation. He has authored more than 400 research articles and 3 books in astrophysics and cosmology.
Do you ever marvel at how much the "science fiction" from past decades is beginning to look less like fiction, and more like reality? Join us for a discussion of yet another example: Dr. Alcubierre will be explaining his theory of a way to make warp drive possible.
Save the date!

Pipelines through Paradise: a panel discussion on Alberta oil
Prof. Biswas' lecture, the “Future of the World's Water: Rhetoric and Reality”, will challenge the widespread belief that there is an impending global water crisis. He will argue that the world has enough water to support human populations, associated food and energy requirements, and environmental needs, if we manage it properly. Dr. Biswas will identify poor water management practices, including those in Canada, as a significant obstacle and will discuss how existing management approaches need to be re-evaluated. Dr. Biswas will describe how remarkable advances are being made in unexpected places, and how Canada can play a more significant role in improving the world's water future.
Please join us for the Water Institute’s Research Symposium 2013.
