All in Canadian Light Source
“It’s been exciting to do some amazing science right in my backyard,” says Robertson. “I grew up in Saskatoon, knowing what the CLS was, and when I went to university it was kind of like this magical place that I had no idea how to use.”
Working towards a new vaccine for whooping cough, Rajendar Deora's lab harnesses synchrotron facilities.
The Canada First Research Excellence Fund has awarded the University of Saskatchewan $37.2 million over 7 years for global food security research. The Canadian Light Source is a major partner in this project, providing unique imaging capabilities to advance agricultural leadership.
A team of scientists led by University of Saskatchewan researcher Dr. Saroj Kumar is using cutting-edge Canadian Light Source techniques to screen and treat breast cancer at its earliest changes
AREVA Resources uses synchrotron techniques to investigate the life cycles of elements of concern, such as lead, arsenic, and molybdenum, at miniscule concentrations impossible to observe with conventional techniques.
Little is known about the Royal Naval Hospital’s cemetery in Antigua, and with little but the bones themselves to go on, researchers turn to synchrotron imaging to uncover the histories of the men buried there.
Scientists are working to produce ultra-clean fuels from them using refined chemical techniques, work made possible by Canadian Light Source techniques.
Researchers have developed a technique to turn nearly any blood into a universal blood type, a development which could transform blood transfusion and human health.
Researchers have developed a new catalyst material that outperforms benchmarks and opens the door to significant advances in petroleum refinement and industrial applications.
It is impossible to treat stroke immediately, even if you have a stroke in-hospital. That means that the best way to protect stroke victims is to understand the mechanisms behind damage after a stroke, and basic research is vital to developing therapies to reduce brain injury and improving stroke victims’ quality of life. That's what Mark Hackett does.
Uncovering the patterns that exist along with and compete with superconductivity in high-temperature superconductors.
Did you know that microbes leave behind fossil traces? Researchers from the University of Tubingen mimic that action.
What does the leftover phosphorus in the soil looks like? Is it inorganic, bonded to other metals in forms plants can use, or is it mostly organic, which microbes must break down to plant-available forms? And what sources of phosphorus do plants actually rely on?
