Research with researchers from the University of Alberta, the University of Calgary and the University of Lethbridge
Every Tuesday, we delve into the fascinating work underway at Alberta's three research universities -- the University of Calgary, University of Alberta, and the University of Lethbridge.
Spinal cord research (8:03) Mar 17: Quite a coup for the University of Calgary! A renowned researcher from Ottawa, Dr. Peter Stys, has packed up and moved out west to advance his work in spinal cord research. We found out more about what his work will entail in Alberta.
The U of L and the Hershel Space Observatory (7:05) Mar 10: The Hershel Space Observatory launches in April from French Guyana. On board - three scientific instruments with an Alberta connection. We talk to David Naylor, a professor of physics and astronomy at the University of Lethbridge about his work that will soon be headed to space.
