Studying in Windsor pays off for PhD student

Coming to Windsor might have been the best move ever for a young Chinese engineering graduate student who’s trying to improve the performance of hybrid electric vehicles.

“It’s been really good for me,” said Xiaomin Lu, a PhD student who will soon return to Windsor after a productive six-week trip to India to conduct more research. “If I had stayed in China, I never would have had the opportunity to experience so much.”

International cancer research initiative closer to reality with donation

The first true international cancer research corridor in North America is one step closer to being launched in Windsor-Essex, thanks to a recent contribution from Windsor Regional Hospital.

In late December, hospital board chair Gay Wrye presented the Windsor Cancer Research Group with a cheque for $25,000 as part of a matching challenge grant program.

High school students conduct their own chemistry magic show

It’s one thing to watch a magic show, but quite another to perform the tricks.

A group of Grade 11 chemistry students found that out yesterday when they visited the University to see first-hand what it will be like if they decide to pursue the subject at the next level.
