Research: not a bad way to spend a summer

One of the benefits of studying at UPEI is how early in your academic career you can get your hands dirty in research. It’s not unusual to see undergraduate students working here alongside faculty on cutting-edge research.  We'd like you to meet our next generation of researchers. 

This summer, 15 UPEI students won Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRAs) from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC): some helped in the development of new, environmentally friendly batteries; some devised mathematical equations to help us better understand the growth of cancerous tumours; some performed a survey of an invasive crab species to analyze it effect on the native oyster population. (Note: these links go live on Monday, August 17th)
