Gauge company hires grad student who designed laser-guided measuring machine

Ken Bishop and his crew at Landau Gage had a great idea for an innovative new quality control product for the auto industry, but knew they needed help making it a reality.

Thanks to a graduate student in engineering and a federal government program that pairs up bright young researchers with potential employers, Bishop’s company has a new prototype they can show off, and a new employee to boot.

Pam and DanBiochemistry PhD student Pam Ovadje and third-year undergrad Daniel Tarade recently presented their research at the Natural Health Products Research Society annual conference in British Columbia and came home with top honours in the oral and poster presentation competitions.

Cancer cell 'suicide' aim of award-winning students

Assisted suicide is topic guaranteed to court all kinds of controversy.

However one place where you’ll get general consensus on the matter is among the students working in the biochemistry lab of Siyaram Pandey, where rather than people, they help cancer cells commit suicide.

“One of the hallmarks of cancer cells is that they forget how to die,” says third-year undergrad Daniel Tarade. “We’re forcing their hand, and causing them to commit suicide.”

Kevin Milne and Craig HarwoodKinesiology professor Kevin Milne and master's student Craig Harwood are investigating whether dehydration may contribute to increased rates of concussion among collegiate athletes.

Researchers probing link between concussions and dehydration

Kevin Milne and Craig Harwood have a pretty strong suspicion that dehydration may result in a greater likelihood of concussion for many athletes.

Proving it, however, is the hard part.

Students get Head Start on university experience

Julianna Schiller was looking forward to leaving home to go away for school—just not too far away.

“It’s far away enough to get away from home and have a new experience, but still close enough to come home,” the London, Ontario, student responded when asked why she chose the University of Windsor for first year criminology. “Plus they had the program I wanted, and it’s a really good school.”
