UWindsor researchers and institutional partners are tackling microplastics pollution at its source.
A $50,000 donation from the University of Windsor Alumni Association will fund two projects to further science and education in Windsor-Essex.
Bulent Mutus is a micro mechanic.
But instead of fixing cars with wrenches and grease, the biochemist rolls up his sleeves and chops up and rebuilds proteins using microscopes and Petri dishes.
“If this enzyme were a car we would know where the engine is, but now we are looking at turning that engine off so the pathology will go away,” the UWindsor professor said.
Two UWindsor students received honours at the Southern Ontario Undergraduate Chemistry Conference, March 18 at York University.
Jacqueline Gemus, a student in professor Rob Schurko’s research group, won first prize in physical chemistry.
Dr. Schurko says Gemus’ main area of interest is the mechanochemical synthesis of porous framework materials known as zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs) and the use of solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance to monitor the formation of these amazing framework materials.
Students in the Master of Medical Biotechnology program get training in business to make them valuable to employers.
Professor Stephen Loeb’s research got a boost when the 2016 Nobel Prize for Chemistry recognized work in his field.
A UWindsor researcher has designed and built a filter that can remove potentially harmful phosphates from contaminated water.
A chemistry researcher and his industrial partners are testing a new method of filtering agricultural wastewater with the help of an unexpected material.
