Prof Monteiro and his research group were successful in moving their C. difficile vaccine developments from the lab into the private sector, where they will be subjected to clinical trials in the coming years. Mario's group has been working on the development of this polysaccaride-based vaccine system since 2007, and the intellectual property has just been purchased by Stellar Biotechnologies for market development. Congratulations to Mario and your group! It is good to see good science come together this way, and that the world outside our halls recognizes Excellence when it sees it.
This year's Pfizer Lectureship series was a great success. Thank you to Professor M. Krische from the University of Texas for being the guest speaker and to all that attended.
Congratulations to Dr. Steve Forsey who has been awarded one of two Excellence in Science Teaching Award (ESTA) for 2013. The ESTA Award is the Science Faculty's formal recognition of Science instructors who have demonstrated sustained, high quality teaching in their courses.
Congratulations to Dr. Janusz Pawliszyn for being awarded the Chemical Institute of Canada 2013 Environment Division Research and Development Award for distinguished contributions to research and/or development in the fields of environmental chemistry or environmental chemical engineering, while working in Canada. Dr. Pawliszyn will be presented with the award during the 96th Canadian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition, which is taking place in Quebec City from May 26-30, 2013, and will be asked to present a lecture at the Conference.
The Guelph-Waterloo Centre for Graduate Work in Chemistry and Biochemistry is one of Canada's largest and most successful graduate schools. The Centre is housed in the Chemistry departments at the Universities of Guelph and Waterloo, two of Canada's highest rated Universities. A diverse team of world-class faculty from both Departments provides research opportunities in a myriad of chemical and biochemical research areas. Please survey our website to see the many areas.
If one considers the comfortable and safe living environment of two midsized cities, the culture and sports activities and the great sense of community within the Departments and the Universities, there lies a wonderful and fulfilling opportunity for study and growth.
Your first research investigation should be an analysis of the prospects for a graduate degree at (GWC)2. After you explore this website, a more detailed examination can be made by visiting our Centre. Please e-mail us for more details.
