A PhD student and Canada Research Chair get to the bottom of why consumers are turned off by genetically modified foods, and what could be done to change this. This research will be of interest to all parties involved in labeling practices – industry, marketers, government – and consumers.
New research shows that accurate wearable technology could help those with diabetes in adjusting their insulin dosage to factor in the effects of exercising.

A researcher looks at service delivery, in three Ontario universities, to Indigenous and international students. He concludes that the Higher Education institutions are making certain assumptions about these student populations – a finding that will be of interest to all universities and colleges.
Researchers warn others in the scientific community that tracking ground-nesting grassland birds using radio transmitters – a common practice – can result in the bird’s entanglement, particularly for fledglings. The two biologists make suggestions for alterations to the apparatus to prevent this.
A new study, led by a Canada Research Chair at York University, finds a protein that plays a key role in muscle health during exercise. This adds important new knowledge around the positive effects of exercise on muscle health.
A York U researcher challenges the image of residential schools as well-intentioned but misguided institutions. She illustrates, instead, that state-sanctioned violence was etched into the system’s foundational logic and operations from the very start.
A new and engaging textbook by Science Prof explains human sex through a series of comparisons to non-human organisms. Hint: It’s not all candle-lit dinners as one non-human species kills and eats its partner during copulation.
Interviews with UN employees, about anti-LGBTQIs beliefs/behaviours within UN-member countries, provide evidence that points to new strategies to protect vulnerable individuals. This research will capture the attention of both human rights groups and policy makers on a global scale.
