Campus expertise on display at auto show

Research from the University of Windsor will take to a global stage at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit Sept. 14 and 15.

The University is partnering with Invest WindsorEssex  (IWE), St. Clair College , WEtech Alliance , and Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island to showcase the Windsor-Essex region as a premier location for mobility innovation.

“The Windsor-Essex region is transitioning from its long-standing identity as the Automotive Capital of Canada to becoming the Automobility Capital of Canada,” says Heather Pratt, the University’s executive director for research and innovation. “The University of Windsor is well positioned to support the advancement of new technology and mobility innovations as we transition to connected, autonomous, secure, and electrified (CASE) passenger vehicles.”

The “Windsor-Essex: Your Bridge to the Future” highlights the region’s strategic location at the heart of North America’s mobility and innovation corridor. Its quality of life, access to global talent, and rapidly growing mobility and tech sectors will be topics of discussion with hundreds of leaders from global automakers, suppliers, and start-ups.

“The ecosystem in the Windsor-Essex region is exceptionally well aligned to support automotive manufacturers and industry leaders in advancing new and exciting technologies,” Pratt says. “We look forward to showcasing this remarkable regional collaboration at the North American International Auto Show.”

parking lot on Sunset Ave Construction of the new residence on Sunset Ave. south of Wyandotte St. will reduce parking capacity in adjacent lots.

Construction of new residence set to begin

Site preparation for construction of the University’s new student residence, to be located on Sunset Ave. between Wyandotte and Unions streets, is set to begin Monday, Sept. 19.

Disruption and noise are expected to be minimal as hoarding fences are erected around portions of campus parking lots ECC and Lot V (Clark), resulting in a reduction of parking capacity in these areas.

Parking pass holders will be accommodated in the following the lots: Union (Lot Z), HK (Lot H), Stadium (Lot G), and Lebel (Lot P). See map here .

The new 160,000 square-foot residence will be a state-of-the-art, six-storey, 440-room building featuring dining facilities and other student amenities. It is slated to be ready for occupancy in 2025.

Conference advances ecosystem approach to lakes stewardship

The Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research (GLIER) wrapped up a successful three days of knowledge sharing and networking at the inaugural Ecosystem Approach Conference & Synthesis Workshop.

The ecosystem approach has long served as a collaborative framework for governing, researching, and stewarding the health of the Great Lakes. The event was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but co-chairs Catherine Febria and John Hartig were able to finally host the event Aug. 22 to 24 as a hybrid effort with more than 120 participants worldwide.

“We held a one-day global conference alongside six simultaneous synthesis workshops that expressly link science, human dimensions, policy and management,” says Dr. Febria, integrative biology professor and researcher with GLIER.

“We’ve been planning since before the pandemic, so I’m thrilled we finally got to pull this off, featuring the University of Windsor as the meeting place.”

Day one featured a global virtual conference with plenary speaker Hugh Possingham, an expert on the science and practice of ecosystem-based management of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, former chief scientist for the Nature Conservancy, and currently a professor at the University of Queensland and Queensland’s chief scientist.

The following two-days saw scientists, decision-makers, and other conferees meet in person for six synthesis workshops , each unpacking and exploring critical dimensions of the ecosystem approach, including: the history and origin of ecosystem-based approaches, blue economy, technological advances, Indigenous knowledge systems, science-policy solutions, education and knowledge mobilization, and human dimensions.

With nearly $70,000 in sponsorship from agencies and foundations across the Great Lakes, this form of support towards holistic efforts linking science and management is urgent and undeniable, says Febria.

“The health of the Laurentian Great Lakes is a priority for all communities across the region. While there is so much knowledge out there, this effort is bringing key elements together in a unique and impactful way.”

She also acknowledged support from all corners of the University of Windsor: the Office of Research and Innovation Services, Public Affairs and Communications, the Leddy Library, the University Print Shop, Conference Services, and Information Technology Services as well as GLIER, as well as more than a dozen undergraduate and graduate student volunteers who assisted and participated in all aspects of the conference and synthesis workshop discussions.

Other local supporters included the City of Windsor, who hosted an evening celebration at the Ojibway Nature Centre, which saw more than 100 conference attendees, community members, and the public participate in Indigenous-inspired fare, storytelling, art exhibits, and guided paint classes. The Canadian consulate general sponsored a dinner by the river for workshop participants.

Coming next is a series of community workshops across the Great Lakes.

“We are excited about the next phase which will support graduate student research opportunities, and the mobilization of this event into a monograph, dialogue series but most importantly improved decision-making and community connections across the Great Lakes and beyond,” Febria says.

med student Schulich-UWindsor Opportunities for Research Excellence Program medical student award recipients will present their projects Sept. 15.

Award-winning med students to present research projects

Medical students from the Windsor campus of the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry will discuss their research projects with clinicians and scientists on Thursday, Sept. 15.

The 10 presenters will each take five minutes to discuss their work as a participant in the Schulich-UWindsor Opportunities for Research Excellence Program, which has them conduct research under the supervision of a UWindsor faculty member.

The program offers 10 weeks of intensive, hands-on research experience, contributing to the medical students’ academic and professional growth by offering opportunities to participate in seminars, networking, social activities, and a final presentation to demonstrate their research work.

Thursday’s presentations will be held under the auspices of Windsor Regional Hospital “grand rounds,” which bring together scientists from varying fields to address questions. It is open to the broader health research community and will run 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Zoom. Click here for more information, including a list of speakers and topics, and to register .

Devinder Moudgil, medical student research associate with the WE-Spark Health Institute, says the event is exciting.

“It is helping to advance health research and encourages medical students’ participation in research by having clinicians and residents from the hospital and University of Windsor faculty members and students attend these presentations,” says Dr. Moudgil.

WE-Spark welcomes inquiries from clinicians regarding academic appointment at the University of Windsor. Its team is available to support health research projects and assist in developing partnerships for research.
