Vision scientist Natalie Hutchings and Biology continuing lecturer Marcel Pinheiro have been awarded the Faculty of Science's 2019 Excellence in Science Teaching Award for their innovative and engaging teaching methods.
Today, the Centre for Bioengineering and Biotechnology (CBB) announced the recipients of their seed funding competition. A total of ten Waterloo professors were listed, including four researchers from the Faculty of Science. This is the second round of funding awarded under the program, which debuted last year.
“You are biased. And so am I,” was the message that started off the Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) seminar last week. Bias in science and academia is now being recognized as a prevalent problem, influencing hiring practices, attrition rates, and collaborations.
