International students offered taste of grad studies at Queen’s

Queen's in the World

Students from around the globe got a glimpse of life as a graduate student at Queen’s at a recent event held through the School of Graduate Studies (SGS).

Every summer, SGS invites students participating in the Mitacs Globalink international research internships to visit Queen’s and Kingston. During their day-long visit, the undergraduate students – who are spending the summer working on research projects at various Canadian universities (including Queen’s) – take a campus tour, meet with graduate students and professors from various fields, and take a trolley bus tour through Kingston.

“It’s an opportunity for them to learn about research opportunities at Queen’s and the advantages of studying and living in Kingston,” says Kim McAuley, Acting Vice-Provost and Dean, SGS.

Several international students visited Queen's last week, exploring graduate studies options, and touring campus and Kingston (with Kingston Trolley Tours, above). 

“The interns make personal connections with our faculty and current graduate students so they can envision studying as future master’s or PhD students at Queen’s. The interns see that current international graduate students are working on interesting research projects with talented professors. Globalink helps Queen’s attract top international graduate students with external funding from Mitacs.”

For Daniela Iribe Gonzalez, the Queen’s visit was a chance to explore Queen’s research program and see if it would be a good fit for her and her studies in geodetic engineering.

“I’d heard that Queen’s is really good at research. I enjoy the research and I want to do more,” says Ms. Iribe Gonzalez, a student from Mexico who is spending the summer on a Globalink internship at the University of Ottawa. While she hasn’t made any decisions on where she’ll apply to graduate school, she was impressed with what Queen’s offers. “People are very welcoming and the campus is beautiful,” she says.

Jiaqi Chen, from China, is currently a research intern at Queen’s, working with Professor Mark Daymond in Mechanical and Materials Engineering. He’s considering graduate studies in Canada, but has yet to make any firm application decisions.

“I’ve only been here about 10 days. The work I’m doing is different than I expected, but it’s interesting,” he says. “I find Kingston and Queen’s to be a quiet and beautiful place. Life is slower here than in China and the people are very nice. I’ve never been abroad before, and my English is not always great, but so far, I think everyone understands me and they have been helpful."

In total, Queen’s hosted seven Mitacs research interns and 13 undergraduate Globalink students from other universities at the event. Currently, seven Mitacs Graduate Research Fellows study at Queen’s, and this summer, the university is hosting nine undergraduate Globalink research interns. Many of them attended the event as well. More info about the organization’s internships and scholarships is available on their website.

Through existing and developing research collaborations, student mobility programs, and international activities at home, Queen’s continues to expand its global reach and offer students and researchers a diverse and enriching environment that pushes their thinking and offers them opportunities to create a lasting impact on their communities, and the world as a whole.

Five Queen’s students earn Vanier scholarships

Five Queen’s University doctoral students have earned Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships designed to help Canadian institutions attract and retain highly qualified doctoral students. The five winners’ areas of study include breast and lung cancer, exercise training programs, pre-cancerous cells, emotions, and persistent genital arousal disorder.

The scholarships provide each student with $50,000 per year for three years during their doctoral studies.

“These are Canada’s most prestigious awards for doctoral students and they will put these young scholars on solid footing for future research success,” says Brenda Brouwer, Vice-Provost and Dean, School of Graduate Studies. “Our five new Vanier Scholars have shown their tremendous research potential. They are also role models for other students at Queen’s, and will mentor their colleagues and peers. We congratulate them on their success.”

This year's recipients include:

Taha Azad

Taha Azad - Mr. Azad has developed a light emission-based biosensor tool to detect interactions between proteins involved in Hippo signaling. The Hippo signaling pathway is involved in restraining cell proliferation. The tool allows the discovery of regulators, which are capable of promoting cancer cell proliferation and metastasis. Mr. Azad is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.

 

Elina Cook

Elina Cook - Ms. Cook’s work aims to enable earlier surveillance and treatment for blood cancer development in the elderly. For Canada’s aging population, this may facilitate a shift toward more targeted, preventative medicine. Additionally, this means that aggressive, often unsuccessful cancer therapies could be avoided in an already frail population, which would improve individuals’ quality of life and the healthcare burden overall. Ms. Cook is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.

 

Kalee De France

Kalee De France - Ms. De France is exploring emotions and how individuals learn to regulate emotions in order to operate in line with social norms and to prevent emotions from impeding social and academic functioning. She is exploring three questions: what are the differences in regulation across adolescence; what external mechanisms are responsible for this change; how do changes in adolescent emotion regulation relate to well-being. Ms. De France is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.

 

Jacob Bonafiglia

Jacob Bonafiglia - Mr. Bonafiglia and his supervisor Brendon Gurd (Kinesiology and Health Studies) are exploring genetic responses to acute exercise, skeletal muscle responses to training, and the use of progressive statistics to characterize individual exercise responses and better understand the potential of non-responders. Mr. Bonafiglia is funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.

 

Robyn Jackowich

Robyn Jackowich - The main goal of Ms. Jackowich’s study is to improve our understanding of the complex nature of persistent genital arousal disorder by examining psychosocial function, sensory characteristics (including sensitivity to touch and heat), and blood flow processes in a controlled study framed by the biopsychosocial perspective. She is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.

 

The Government of Canada awards up to 167 Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships each year for highly qualified doctoral students who demonstrate academic excellence, research potential, and leadership.

A rock solid career

Dr. Heather Jamieson (middle) working at her first geological job in 1971.

At a time when women didn’t often work in the engineering field, a teenage Heather Jamieson was already working as geological field assistant for Noranda Inc. back in 1971. It’s pioneering efforts like these that earned Dr. Jamieson the Peacock Medal from the Mineralogical Association of Canada.

She’s only the third woman to receive this honour from the professional society. The medal is awarded to a scientist who has made outstanding contributions to the mineral sciences in Canada.

“I knew both of the other women, so being named in the same category as them is very meaningful,” says Dr. Jamieson (Environmental Studies, Geological Sciences). “I’m honoured by this award.”

Born and raised in the mining town of Rouyn-Noranda, Dr. Jamieson had an early interest in geology. In 1971, as a high school student, she was hired to work as an assistant to Susan Atkinson, one of the first women hired by the local mineral exploration company. She did her undergraduate work in geology at the University of Toronto when only five to 10 per cent of her class were female.

“A lack of women in our discipline was always a topic of discussion and there were also practical issues when it came to field trips,” says Dr. Jamieson. “There were some barriers but it was also fun to be a pioneer. We opened doors for other female students and Queen’s undergraduate numbers in my discipline are now split about 50/50.”

Over the years, Dr. Jamieson has developed into a world leader in environmental mineralogy when it comes to trace elements at active or abandoned mines. She has advanced and redefined the sub discipline of mineralogy by incorporating cutting-edge analytical techniques. The impact of her science is truly international - spanning academia, industry, government and First Nations. She and her graduate students are currently working at the Giant Mine in Yellowknife on arsenic contamination of soils, lake sediments and dust.

And involving her students in her work has been a key to her success, she says.

“I like working with young people and challenging them in their research,” says Dr. Jamieson. “I’ve had about 50 students graduate that I supervised that are now working in their fields. They are all contributing to the solution for environmental problems and environmental contamination. I also appreciate all my colleagues and collaborators that helped me earn this award.”

A lifetime honour

Two Queen’s professors named Fellows of the Canadian Academy of Engineering.

Andrew Pollard (Mechanical and Materials Engineering) and Christopher Pickles (Mining Engineering) have been named Fellows of the Canadian Academy of Engineering in recognition of their career achievements

Dr. Pollard, the Queen’s University Research Chair in Fluid Dynamics and Multiscale Phenomena, is an internationally-recognized expert in computational and experimental methods in thermo-fluid sciences, high-performance computing and renewable energy.

Christopher Pickles

Dr. Pickles is regarded as Canada’s leading authority on microwave heating for metallurgical applications. He has been a pioneer in the development of microwaves for processing ores, precious metal residues, and waste materials and is a Fellow of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum.

“Fellowship in the Canadian Academy of Engineering, one of Canada’s three national academies, is a recognition of significant research leadership and impact,” says John Fisher, Interim Vice-Principal (Research).  “My sincere congratulations to Drs. Pollard and Pickles on this important national achievement.”

Arriving at Queen’s in 1981, Dr. Pollard has built an international reputation as a leader in a number of engineering disciplines. He has helped create and contributed to learned societies, professional bodies, and national and international associations of engineers and scientists and his work on renewable energy has help to advance changes in provincial environmental policy.

“This is the pinnacle of achievement for my career,” says Dr. Pollard. ““As an undergraduate and then as a grad student in England, I always felt I could do more, that I should be doing more, I wanted to take a leadership role and do something significant, something important. That is what this award represents, my body of work. I can look back at my career with pride.”

Andrew Pollard

Dr. Pickles echoes that sentiment. “I often feel very lucky to be a professor and derive my greatest satisfaction from working with young people and seeing them do well. Somewhere early in my career I realized my job was simply to give young people a chance,” says Dr. Pickles. “To be recognized by one’s colleagues as a Fellow of CAE is a great honour.  It certainly confirms that a useful contribution has been made. As I look back on my career I know I didn't get here by myself, so this award also recognizes those who have supported me along the way.”

Election to the Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE) is one of the highest professional honours accorded an engineer. Fellows have distinguished themselves in different sectors including business, academia and government and in different roles such as business management, executive management, technical, and university faculty. Fellow of the CAE are nominated and elected by their peers (current CAE Fellows) to honorary fellowship in the Academy in view of their distinguished achievements and career-long service to the engineering profession.

“Given my many research activities and the various recognitions I have been honoured to receive, I think my most important contribution to society and my enduring legacy are my students: those I have taught in the classroom and those I have nurtured in research,” says Dr. Pollard. “Their successes in academe, industry and society give me great satisfaction and immense pride in their accomplishments.”

Last chance to see New Eyes on the Universe exhibit

The New Eyes on the Universe exhibit – featuring the groundbreaking work of Queen's Professor Emeritus and Nobel Laureate Art McDonald, and his team at SNOLAB – will be on view at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre for one more week, until July 9.

The interactive exhibit highlights the discoveries of the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) project. Dr. McDonald shared the 2015 Nobel Prize in physics for this experiment, which proved that solar neutrinos change their flavour en route to Earth, an important discovery for explaining the nature of matter and the structure of the universe.

Created by SNOLAB with Science North, this touring installation in the Agnes atrium features a special component for the Queen's setting: a real-time cloud chamber that makes visible some of the subatomic particles that continually bombard us.

Admission is free. More information available in the Gazette or on the Agnes website.

International research leader earns top honour

Queen’s Professor Paula James was recognized for her work with inherited bleeding disorders.

Queen’s University Professor Paula James, one of Canada’s leading researchers in inherited bleeding disorders, has been honoured with the Cecil Harris Award by the Canadian Hemophilia Society.

The award is presented to a physician in recognition of distinguished contributions in the areas of research or the advancement of the care of patients with inherited bleeding disorders. The award has not been presented in 10 years.

Dr. Paula James has earned the Cecil Harris Award.

“I’m proud and humbled to receive this national honour,” says Dr. James (Medicine and Pathology and Molecular Medicine, School of Medicine). “It was made even more special to receive the award from my mentor Dr. David Lillicrap.”

Drs. James and Lillicrap are principal investigators of the Clinical and Molecular Hemostasis Research Group located jointly between Queen’s and Kingston General Hospital. The focus of the lab is to utilize a variety of experimental approaches to understand the molecular basis of blood coagulation and to develop strategies to translate this knowledge into clinical benefits.

After completing her training in internal medicine at the University of Saskatchewan, Dr. James came to Queen’s to complete her clinical hematology fellowship. She then entered a 30-month training in basic laboratory research in the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine. During this time, she honed her talents as an accomplished clinician and researcher in the field of inherited bleeding disorders.

In her clinic, Dr. James directs the Southeastern Ontario Regional Inherited Bleeding Disorder Program and has established a Women’s Bleeding Disorder Clinic. Her expertise in the care of von Willebrand Disease (VWD) – a lifelong bleeding disorder which affects the blood’s ability to clot – has been recognized by the international bleeding disorder community. She also leads a research program with a focus on VWD along with hemophilia.

“For sure, an award like this is a recognition of a team effort,” says Dr. James.  “I’m fortunate to work with great people on a daily basis.”

Dr. James’ Let’s Talk Period website features a bleeding assessment tool to help women that may be suffering from bleeding disorders. More than 2,000 women have taken the test in 106 countries and the website has had more than 15,000 views.

“Receiving this award has given me even more motivation to work harder and help more people,” says Dr. James. “I’m committed to my patients and passionate about my work and I want to help. That’s always been my goal.”

For more information on the award please visit the Canadian Hemophilia Society website.

Two 2017 Queen’s National Scholars announced

Queen's University’s Faculty of Arts and Science will gain two prominent new academics following successful applications to the Queen’s National Scholar (QNS) program.

“The QNS program is designed to enrich teaching and research, especially in newly developing fields of knowledge, and is an important initiative supporting our faculty renewal efforts,” says Benoit-Antoine Bacon, Provost and Vice Principal (Academic). “The Principal and I extend our warmest welcome and congratulations to both Dr. Isabelle St-Amand and Dr. Michael Doxtater, our newest Queen’s National Scholars. Both will contribute significantly to our scholarship in the areas of Indigenous studies and culture, a growing need strongly identified in our Truth and Reconciliation Commission report.”

Isabelle St-Amand is one of two new Queen's National Scholars. She will be joining the French Studies and the Languages, Literatures and Cultures​ departments.

Dr. St-Amand received her PhD in 2012 from the Université du Québec à Montréal. Her thesis investigated the Oka Crisis through the study of lndigenous and non-Indigenous documentary films and narratives, and was published in 2015. She has worked with the leading scholars in migrant literatures on an anthology of critical texts, and a special journal issue on environmental ethics and activism in Indigenous film and literature. Dr. St-Amand has a proven record of working collaboratively with Indigenous organizations to develop her research.

As a QNS in Aboriginal and Migrant Literatures, Dr. St-Amand will fill a critical need in the departments of French Studies and Languages, Literatures and Cultures to enhance the scholarship of Aboriginal Francophone Literature, and will provide a strong link to Aboriginal Anglophone Literature. She brings with her an impressive teaching dossier that includes teaching at three universities, and will contribute significantly to the new graduate program in Transcultural & Linguistics Studies. Dr. St-Amand will start at Queen's in July.

“I am excited about the research and teaching opportunities that are opening for me at Queen’s,” says Dr. St-Amand. “This opportunity aligns perfectly with my area of research, so I could not have dreamed of a better place for continuing my work.”

“On a personal level, I am looking forward to exploring the city of Kingston and the surrounding environment,” she adds. “I love the way the water is present all around the city. I hope to find opportunities to swim, do outdoor activities in the region, and try the beautiful night skating rink at the city hall in the winter.”

Michael Doxtater is one of two new Queen's National Scholars. He will be joining the Languages, Literatures and Cultures and Global Development Studies departments.

Dr. Doxtater is an award-winning documentarian and scholar of international stature. A member of the Haudenosaunee Nation, and fluent in Kanyen'keha (Mohawk), Dr. Doxtater has both a deeply-rooted understanding of traditional oral knowledge and a clearly articulated vision for the future of lndigenous Studies at Queen's. Involved in grassroots organizing around environmental protection, he is highly regarded as an art practitioner, community activist, educator, strategic planner, and administrator. He possesses extensive professional and scholarly experience in addition to his status as a healer and mediator within his own communities. He will be joining the Languages, Literatures and Cultures and the Global Development Studies departments in July.

The university's reputation is part of what attracted Dr. Doxtater to Queen’s.

“When I opened the email and saw it was a posting at Queen's University...It's one of those universities that has a certain place in the higher learning sphere. It is a first-class university,” he says.

His ambition is to develop a Centre of Excellence Dedicated to Aboriginal Recovery (CEDAR) that would place Queen's at the forefront in the growing field of applied, land-based pedagogies.

“Having Queen's be the platform for this initiative makes sense because of the pilot project’s orientation, which is working with the Iroquois community,” he adds. “With their traditional territory stretching from the Montréal area to the Six Nations territory in southern Ontario, we are geographically in the middle.”

In his free time, Dr. Doxtater stays in shape through visits to the gym, daily runs, and Wasáse – a type of tai chi based on Native dance forms. He is working on selling a screenplay he wrote, and plays guitar.

The QNS program was established in 1985. Since then, more than 100 QNS appointments have been made in a wide variety of disciplines, and the appellation of Queen’s National Scholar has become synonymous with academic excellence.

Queen’s University joins The Conversation Canada

[The Conversation]
The Conversation was founded in Australia in 2011, and has grown to include seven editions, including a newly-launched Canadian edition.

An exciting new partnership between Queen’s and The Conversation Canada will see researchers access an innovative model of journalism: one that relies on their academic expertise, and allows academics to write about current events, topical issues, and their own research on a range of subjects – from science and technology to politics, arts, culture, business, the environment, health, and education. 

First founded in 2011 in Australia, The Conversation is a proven and independent online news platform which academics from around the world can use to contribute their thoughts and expertise. It is not a traditional news site with a team of journalists writing the stories – rather, the voices featured are researchers who are assisted with editing support and pointers from The Conversation’s editorial team. The pieces are free to read, enjoy, and republish. Content is also made available to other media outlets via national newswire services.

With great anticipation, and support from a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) grant, The Conversation has recently launched in Canada, and Queen’s University has signed on as a founding member. This means faculty and graduate students from across the university can visit The Conversation Canada’s website, register as an author, and begin submitting story ideas and opinion pieces to the editorial board. It also means staff from The Conversation Canada will be reaching out to Queen’s researchers, as well as researchers from a number of other Canadian universities, seeking story ideas and columns to be shared on the platform.

The Conversation has become the largest network of global expertise in research and scholarly activity,” says Benoit-Antoine Bacon, Provost and Vice Principal (Academic). “We are thrilled that the platform has launched in Canada, and we hope that our academic community embraces this concept as has happened in other parts of the world. The Conversation is a powerful tool for community engagement and will bolster the efforts of our researchers to share their expertise and build their own profile.”

The Conversation is a tremendous resource and opportunity for any academic seeking to promote their research beyond the academy,” says Michael Fraser, Vice Principal (University Relations). "We look forward to contributing to this important platform, which will relay the importance and impact of the research and scholarship happening at Queen's to a variety of external audiences."

The Conversation Canada is free to use, and content from the platform is shared with news organizations from coast-to-coast-to-coast via The Canadian Press newswire service. Scott White, formerly the editor-in-chief of The Canadian Press, has been tapped as The Conversation Canada’s first editor.

“I believe the primary role of good journalism is to provide the public with factual information about the world they live in so they can, in turn, make informed decisions about important issues in their lives,” says Mr. White. “The model of The Conversation is that it combines the deep knowledge of academics with the ability of journalists to convey information to a broad audience.”

White notes the other six editions of The Conversation – Australia, U.K., France, Africa, U.S., and Global – attract 4.8 million web visitors per month, and the content is shared with 35 million readers through syndication agreements. Academics and universities will benefit from this relationship because it will allow important research to reach a wider audience, while news outlets receive free, vetted content to supplement their news coverage.

To learn more about The Conversation Canada, and register as a contributor, visit theconversation.com/ca.

Are you a Queen’s academic interested in contributing to The Conversation Canada or learning more about the platform? Please contact Melinda Knox, Associate Director, Research Profile and Initiatives, at knoxm@queensu.ca for more information.

Queen’s is celebrating the groundbreaking work of the university’s researchers and to help promote the achievements a series of banners are being placed on prominent buildings around campus as well as on light poles along University Avenue and downtown Kingston.

Research is core to the foundations of Queen’s as an institution. The banners highlight the importance of research prominence to our internal and external communities, and draw attention to how research and scholarly activity plays a critical role in our ability to develop the talent and ideas that serve all aspects of society.

The banners display the imagery of Queen’s Research as well as highlighting the 2015 Nobel Prize for Physics received by Arthur McDonald, for his longtime research and groundbreaking findings into neutrinos – sub-atomic particles considered the basic building blocks of the universe.

The new banners are being placed directly onto the buildings, much like a giant sticker, by staff from Jet Signs. At the same time the banners celebrating the 175th anniversary of Queen’s are being removed. The new banners have been placed on Grant Hall, Stauffer Library, Walter Light Hall and Duncan McArthur Hall.  

New Queen’s research hub harnesses IBM’s Watson technology

Don Aldridge, Executive Director, Centre for Advanced Computing at Queen's poses with Colette Lacroix of IBM Canada.

The Centre for Advanced Computing (CAC) at Queen’s University has partnered with IBM to establish a new academic research support initiative leveraging the company’s Watson cognitive technology.

“This collaboration between IBM and the CAC promises to increase our research capacity and help prepare our community for the next wave of technological innovation,” says Daniel Woolf, Principal and Vice-Chancellor, Queen’s University. “With access to IBM’s state-of-the-art technology, the CAC will have an increased ability to harness data and help a wide range of researchers use information in new and exciting ways.”

The CAC and IBM are creating the “Cognitive Development Hub”, a team of cognitive developers at the CAC who will engage with academic researchers, and support collaboration with industry partners to explore the potential of incorporating cognitive technologies into their businesses.

“Queen’s is committed to fostering partnerships that enhance our strengths and accelerate research outcomes on the regional, national, and global stages,” says John Fisher, Queen’s Interim Vice-Principal (Research). “This collaboration is another exciting example of IBM and Queen’s working together on mutually beneficial and innovative projects that positively impact our research digital infrastructure and knowledge translation.”

The Cognitive Development Hub will develop proofs of concept solutions using Watson technologies. Industry partners will learn how the technology can work for them, and Queen’s post-doctoral fellows and undergraduate interns will have the opportunity to develop their cognitive skills by working on real-world projects.

“IBM sees great value in expanding our already strong relationship with one of Canada’s top research universities. This is an important and unique collaboration with Queen’s University – our first Canadian academic partner to establish a development centre using Watson technologies. We are also excited by the focus of Queen’s to engage students in the centre – they will be Canada’s future IT leaders,” says Dino Trevisani, General Manager, IBM Canada Limited and graduate of Queen's University's MBA program.

“Academic collaboration with industry not only accelerates the creation of new innovative solutions and technologies, it also helps to drive the economy by transferring knowledge gained at our universities to industry, increasing skills both in our graduates and within our industry partners, and creating new jobs and business opportunities,” says Don Aldridge, Executive Director, Centre for Advanced Computing at Queen’s University. “As Canada becomes a true knowledge economy and executes on our innovation agenda, partnerships such as this will prove essential for everyone involved.”

The CAC’s Cognitive Development Hub is the latest example of Queen’s and IBM working together on innovative projects. Most recently, the new “IBM Canada | Smith Cognitive Computing Centre” was unveiled in Toronto. The first of its kind at a business school in Canada, the centre is a collaborative space that will provide an exclusive artificial intelligence demonstration experience for IBM clients and enhanced access to cognitive computing solutions for Smith students and faculty. IBM’s partnerships with the Smith School of Business and the CAC are complementary, covering the spectrum from education through to hands-on application development and execution.
