Memorial’s Department of Biology and the Centre for Innovation in Teaching and Learning (CITL) are being acknowledged for their efforts to integrate active learning in the introductory biology class.
The 2018 Canadian Association for University Continuing Education (CAUCE) has chosen them to receive a program award in their Credit Over 48 Hours category.
The award recognizes excellence in university continuing education programs in Canada and aims to nurture the concept of scholarship of practice inherent in the program development process. It will be presented at their annual conference in Halifax on May 29.
Daniel Dupont wears many hats.
The Métis man is a part-time PhD candidate in the Faculty of Science’s Cognitive and Behavioural Ecology program who also works as a provincial wildlife biologist in Manitoba.
For the past few years, Mr. Dupont has been working with that province’s Indigenous and other communities to find out why Manitoba’s moose population is on the decline in some areas.
Memorial University hosted the Science Atlantic Aquaculture & Fisheries and Biology conference on March 9-11. This conference is held at one of 14 universities in Atlantic Canada each year and celebrates the research undertaken by undergraduate and graduate students across Atlantic Canada.
Third year Biology undergraduate student Junbum (Kevin) Im, researches DNA-mutating enzymes that cause and exacerbate cancers including lymphomas, breast, ovarian, lung cancers and melanomas.
These enzymes work by mutating the DNA of cancer cells which causes cancers to become drug-resistant, therefore much harder to treat and more aggressive.
Student Shannon Anderson (Biology) & employer Dr. Suzie Blatt (Agriculture and Agrifoods Canada) discuss the benefits of Co-operative Education.
