Canadian Molecular Biologist Exhibits Artwork in Shanghai

Canadian science is world-class and many Canadian scientists are world-renowned. While it is not surprising to find Canadian scientists presenting their findings at locations far from home, it is unusual to hear about Canadian molecular biologists traveling to Shanghai to present an artistic rendition of their work. The scientist/artist, Dr. Campbell, claims that many of his paintings are inspired by cell biology and cardiovascular sciences.

Can you see the resemblance?

There is No Truth in Science!

In this enlightening talk, Dr. Kamala Patel from the University of Calgary, tells us something that we all intuitively know but cannot communicate to others. Science is not about truth. Science is a journey. It is about knowledge. Science is an adventure.

Science is like kayaking on a river, where you were a moment ago is not where you are right now.

How I Became a Leech Expert

Canadian Mark Siddall did his graduate work in blood parasitology at the University of Toronto. It was there that he began to study leeches as a source of blood parasites and went on to become one of the world’s foremost experts in the study of leeches.

Did you know that leeches are used to study animal biodiversity over large geographical territories? Instead of hunting down hundreds of animals in the Amazon, scientists collected leeches and sequenced the blood meal from their feeds in order to find out which rare and endangered species were located in the same geographical areas.

Find out many other cool facts from Dr. Siddall in this video that was filmed this past summer at the World Science Festival.
